Hatching, Scratching, and Dispatching: A Creative Career Development Approach.
Johnson, Lynn E.; And Others
This paper is a compilation of the presentations of six panelists from Brigham Young University describing an innovative career development program for university students. Unlike years past, when students were strongly urged to select a major course of study immediately upon admission to the University, the new program recognizes that career decisions have often been made in the light of very inaccurate information. It contends that career education and development are processes, not products, and that the student must be allowed time for exploration. The program is designed to respond to these problems. The first paper deals with the different university departments involved in the program, while the second describes a one-credit hour course called, "Practical Decision Making." The third presentation presents an overview of the decision making process and the fourth offers an evaluation of new career development programs. The fifth article deals with the use of self-instructional aids in career counseling while the final presentation describes a unique approach by Brigham Young University intended to make students more aware of its services.
