Career Development Issues Affecting Secondary Schools. The Highlight Zone: Research @ Work, No. 1.
Research literature, perceptions of best practices, and the wisdom of practitioners and leaders in the field were examined in order to focus on career development issues affecting secondary schools, including: (1) clarification of career development terms; (2) delivery of career development programs; (3) resources that support program development and improvement; and (4) evidence of program effectiveness, including model programs. Evidence is mounting that an effective means of addressing all these issues may be a comprehensive guidance program that includes a strong career development component. Practical research-based programs have begun to produce information that educators can use to understand and adopt such programs. The literature suggests that emphasis on career development may strengthen in the future and that multiple useful resources are available to implement and improve career development programs.
