Career Counseling through the Internet.
The Internet has a wide array of information sources that the career counselor and student can choose from, depending on their goals. The Internet provides opportunities for job search as well as information for people interested in career clarification, career inventories, resume writing, and interviewing. This article focuses on evaluating web-based career information and explores ideas for developing that information for career counseling utilization with high school and college. Guidelines are provided to assist the user with understanding, validating, and checking the accuracy of information as they go through the decision-making process and the information selection process. "The Four W's" (who, what, when, where) are explained as they relate to information-source evaluation. A form for assessing web sites is provided. Types of information available and tips about how to tell if there is research backing the ideas are discussed under "The Web: Search and Seizure." (EMK)
