The Effects of Career Counseling on Subsequent Job Satisfaction in Mature Women Returning to College.
Covitz, Sharon Baum
The effects of career counseling on subsequent job satisfaction in mature women returning to college was investigated. Subjects, women 25 years or older upon graduation, were drawn from two populations--one that had been involved in career counseling through an established counseling program for mature women, and one that had not. While career counseling did not have a measureable effect on job satisfaction, other variables such as income, marital status, number of children, level of education, and profession did. It is possible that, over time, the positive effects of career counseling were obscured by other factors which fulfilled needs of the subjects. (The questionnaire administered for the study is included.) (Author/HLM)
