Over Seven Hundred Reliable Sources of Free Career Information for Counselors and Counseling Psychologists.
O'Neil, James M.; Tracey, Terence
The value and need for career information and materials have increased due to a greater emphasis on career education in schools, a restrictive job market, and a greater demand by individuals seeking jobs and planning their careers. With budget decreases continuing, counselors and counseling psychologists struggle to find inexpensive but useful resources to use with their clients. One untapped source of career materials is free career information from national associations and government agencies. This paper lists over 700 reliable sources of free career information that have been identified by the Career Resource Center in the University Counseling Center at the University of Kansas. The listing differs from others in that the sources have been evaluated according to National Vocational Guidance Association guidelines and have proven to yield reliable, quality information.
