The Relationship Between Counselors Receiving A Structured Orientation Concerning the Personnel Needs of Business and Industry, Versus Counselors Not Receiving the Orientation.
Kemp, Louie E.
The purposes of this study were to: (1) determine the feasibility of increasing the quality of job performances of counselors and identifying changes in career maturity attitudes of counselors in the area of personnel needs of business and industry; (2) examine the effects of a structured inservice program to aid counselors in performing job functions related to the personnel needs of business and industry; and (3) determine whether there were differences in counselor performances as perceived by administrators, teachers, and students. Subjects were 60 secondary and post-secondary counselors. Crites' CMI-Competence Test, LaBorde's ATVE Scale, and Kemp's CPS Instrument were utilized. An analysis of covariance model and univariant analysis of variance model were employed. Findings indicate the following: Counselors who participated in the inservice program developed more positive attitudes toward career maturity; did not increase career competence; increased effectiveness in job performances related to business and industry; and increased ability to interact with teachers and students concerning the personnel needs of business and industry more than did the counselors who did not participate in the program. Data indicate a definite need for similar programs to be made available to counselors. (Author)
