Career Planning Sensitization (Slide/Tape Show) with Needs Assessment During Freshmen Orientation: A Model for Counseling Centers and High School Settings.
O'Neil, James M.; Van Loon, Keith C.
The freshmen orientation period is an ideal time to sensitize students to the value of career planning and also to help students identify the resources available on campus. There has been a scarcity of literature on the use of the orientation period to sensitize students to the importance of career planning. The purpose of this paper is to describe a freshmen orientation slide tape show that was developed around four themes: (1) the value of career planning for students, (2) the difficulties of career planning with an unstable economy and rapid technological change, (3) the campus and Counseling Center resources available to students, and (4) the University's commitment to the career planning of students. The method of presentation, production procedures, and verbatim description of the slide show context are included. Outcomes and implications for the college and high school counselor are discussed.
