Career Transitions: The Demand for Counseling. Volume 2.
Arbeiter, Solomon; And Others
This is the report of a follow-up study of 400 randomly selected former clients of the Career Education Project (CEP). CEP was an innovative program, funded by NIE, which offered telephone counseling to home-based adults in Providence, Rhode Island. CEP attracted and served clients who were predominantly female, white, and 20-34 years old. They were most likely to be married with one or two children at home, with incomes of $5000-15,000, of varied educational attainment. The few males using the service were single, under 30, with incomes of less than $10,000 a year. CEP clients were overwhelmingly satisfied with the service they received, with their counselors, and with the telephone as a medium of communication. They felt the Project had helped them accomplish their goals, improve their situations, and develop more self-confidence. The type of counseling considered most valuable was in the area of self-evaluation, goal setting, and career decision making. About half the clients indicated they would be willing to pay for the services they had received, but only a few would agree to pay more than $25. (PFS)
