Career Guidance, Career Education, and Vocational Education.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.
These remarks by the Director, Office of Career Education (OE) suggest the need for career education to operate as a concept, career guidance to operate as a service, and vocational education to operate as a program. This paper defines these three areas and elaborates on how counselors can make them best function, in a complementary way, for the students they serve. In conclusion, he outlines six student needs which counselors must unite to meet: (1) recognize and capitalize on the increasingly close relationships between education and work that exist now and will exist in the future, (2) allow the need for work to become a more meaningful part of the total lifestyle of the individual, (3) protect freedom of choice for the individual, (4) provide systematic professional assistance in career decision making, (5) acquire general career skills needed for career adaptability, and (6) acquire sets of job-specific skills that can be used in making a successful transition from the world of schooling to the world of paid employment.
