Career Planning Seminar: A Procedural Outline for Assisting Persons in Career Planning through Group Procedures.
Heise, William; And Others
The Career Planning Seminar was developed by a committee of Schoolcraft Community College counselors for the purpose of facilitating career decision-making in groups. This group structure was adapted from the Systematic Career Counseling Process (used for individual counseling). The program is primarily a guide for counselors and suggests a format and group activities that can be used with career counseling groups of 10 to 12 participants. The process has a positive approach and focuses on the key issues that go into making career decisions. The program is intended to be used with any person who wishes to clarify his/her career future. This group process is being used with community college students who are concerned mainly with choosing an occupation or a college major. It is also being used with adults who want to clarify their lifework objectives and perhaps make mid-life career changes. The Career Planning Seminar is designed to be used in 12 two-hour sessions. It is suggested that the groups meet over a period of 12 weeks; however, other designs such as weekend workshops are feasible. Session topics include: Introduction, Vocational History and Development, Personal Career Needs, Career Information, Self Concept, Value Clarification for Career Choice, Work Value Auction, Level of Functioning (Reality Factors), Strength Acknowledgement and Career Choices, Summary of Career Information, and Career Planning.
