Career Planning and Development Programs for Two-Year Colleges.
Hafer, A. A.
Based on interviews with seven counselors at 2-year colleges in New York, survey responses from six 2-year-college counselors throughout the country, and a review of literature, a plan was created for a career planning and development program for 2-year colleges. Counselors recognized the following needs: career planning for part-time students; special consideration for older adult students; greater resources for career planning and development; more time for career counseling by counselors (academic counseling to be taken care of by faculty); weekend workshops for faculty and counselors to learn how they can supplement each other's efforts; better use of assessment instruments; closer cooperation between career counseling and job placement; and separation of the career and personal counseling function. The career planning and development program suggested includes the following features: a career center; a career library; classroom courses in career planning and development; use of computers in career planning and development; interviews and discussions with persons in various occupations; assessment instruments and remedial education; workshops and seminars; small group discussions; cooperative work experiences; course changes when needed by students; transfer counseling; community outreach; exit counseling; follow-up studies of leaving and graduating students; and annual evaluation. Appendixes to the study include a model for the synthesis of career and leisure counseling, a student occupational plan outline, a professional career development program, an individualized career development network model, and a computer-based career guidance system.
