Refvem, Joanna; Plante, Jean C.; Osborne, W. Larry
There is no question that professionals and students need help in the process of gathering, deciphering, and then utilizing career information. As we enter the 21st century, school counselors are in a significant position to access and facilitate use of all sorts of career information, and they must be technically prepared to orient students, teachers, and parents to vast opportunities that the future holds. This chapter discusses the current state of career planning with a focus on adolescent career exploration and current resources in use. It then describes Career Explore, an interactive program that uses the Internet, and its implementation in middle and high schools throughout North Carolina. An appendix lists helpful web sites for finding career information. (Contains 11 references.) (MKA)
