On-line Career Services: A Brief Update.
Kirk, James J.; Murrin, Jennifer
Numerous web sites on the Internet are dedicated to academic and career planning, market information, market trends, and job banks. A majority of the human resource management services offered on the Internet deal with the area of recruiting. The job placement activities emphasize searching vast databases of job openings and submitting resumes. The World Wide Web also provides a variety of information sources helpful to individuals striving to manage their careers in a rapidly changing work environment. Newsgroups function as electronic bulletin boards that offer a convenient way to gather career information and make professional contacts. Online help is also available in these areas: salary negotiating, preparing for interviews, and interviewing online. Within the past 2 years, career development services on the Web have undergone a virtual metamorphosis. Information about colleges and universities comprises a large content area on the Internet. Telementoring is becoming popular as a way for students to seek career advice and counseling. Career planning services continue to proliferate on the Web. Some web sites are beginning to expand their resources to include private counseling, but there is still very little attention given to testing and self-assessment related to career planning. (Appendixes include six tables related to various types of web sites with their addresses. Contains 26 references.) (YLB)
