In the fourth paper, D. Stuart Conger sets forth the 10 tasks of the assessment component of employment counseling and suggests how the counselor can help clients to set goals. The final three papers concern various aspects of counseling. In the sixth paper, Guy Busque and Georges Sarrazin suggest an evaluation system of employment counseling, while D. Stuart Conger and M.
