Career Transitions: The Demand for Counseling. Volume 1.
Arbeiter, Solomon; And Others
This is a report of a survey of the career guidance and counseling needs of 401 representative in-transition adults in the United States. None were full-time students, and all were either undergoing or anticipating job or career changes. The survey determined that 36% of the American population between the ages of 16 and 65 is in a career transition status, and these adults are predominantly female, white, between 20 and 39 years of age, and married with one to three children living at home. Adults in transition want career services of all types, but are most interested in specific information on jobs, careers, or educational opportunities. Of all adults, the least educated express the greatest interest in services and are willing to pay for them. The adults were asked to indicate their degree of interest in various types of services: information, counseling, guidance and training. Generally speaking, when given the choice as to what kind of help they wanted with a particular topic, adults preferred information to the other three services. (PFS)
