Research and Practice of Career Counseling in Taiwan.
Tien, Hsiu-Lan Shelley
The literature on career development in Taiwan is reviewed. Three decades ago career counseling began with vocational guidance for junior high graduates going to seek a job; the meaning of work focused on earning a living, and the main task was simply to help graduates find jobs. Now the broadened meaning of "career" is defined as a lifelong process of learning and work; career counseling has become a set of services available for all individuals across the life span. Career counseling cannot be viewed independently from social context and public policy; therefore, counselors are called on to provide new opportunities for potential development. Studies included in this review are focused on three groups: (1) students in different stages; (2) special populations such as women, handicapped groups, and special adults; and (3) career development programs in public or private enterprises and professions. Current problems are discussed in three areas: the educational system, special groups and adults, and organizations. Implications of these research studies and practical problems for career counseling are discussed. (Author/EMK)
