Career Exploration for College Students: A Report on a Program.
Comas, Robert E.; Day, Robert W.
The realization of an acute need to help undergraduate students identify meaningful educational and vocational goals led to the development of Career Exploration at the University of Alabama. The overall purpose of the course was to provide interested students from all schools and colleges a comprehensive, developmental program of self exploration, development of skills of decision-making, exploration of educational and career possibilities, and contact with the world of work. The course format consisted of four major components: information sessions, group counseling sessions, individual appraisal and counseling, and on-the-job field work experiences. Course evaluation indicated that the 86 participants generally agreed that the course had either helped them make a career decision or provided skills to assist in making a decision at a later date.
