Practical Career Guidance Counseling, and Placement for the Noncollege-Bound Student: A Review of the Literature.
Ganschow, Laurie H.; And Others
This thorough review of the literature highlights six recurrent themes: (1) Women, minority students, and students from low income families have not obtained occupational information and assistance in relating their abilities and interests to career options and skills training programs. (2) Placement services within the school improve school accountability as well as the relationship of the school to the business community. (3) Current experiments with computerization of information for counseling do not appear to be cost-effective. (4) Counselor education does not prepare counselors for practical career guidance needed by the noncollege-bound. (5) Credential requirements inhibit employment of personnel who might bring practical information to the noncollege-bound. (6) Personnel working with noncollege-bound students are not providing practical career guidance services. The study cites specific recommendations in accordance with these findings. (Author/LAA)
