Creating a Systematic Multi-Mode Approach to Career Guidance.
Colozzi, Edward Anthony
Concerns over career counseling continue to be heard on college campuses. Some of these concerns are articulated in this paper in an effort to promote more cost-effective services. The report opens with a discussion of student attrition and reviews the national literature, outlining such reasons for attrition as a lack of clear vocational goals. The changing nature of student needs is explored, as student bodies represent increasing diversity in age, background, etc.; thus requiring schools to be more attuned to varied students' learning styles and other characteristics. However, reviews of career and employment counseling services available to students indicate that shrinking budgets and increased numbers of students in need of college counseling are creating an important challenge. One way to meet this challenge, it is argued, is through Systematic Career Guidance (SCG). One important aspect of SCG, besides increased student contact and cost efficiency, is the opportunity for students to sit together in small groups as they share vocational interests. Through SCG, Career Services professionals help students become more clear about their career goals, the relevance of higher education to their goals, and how to stay on track.
