Let's Go Surfing: Use of the Internet for Career Counseling in Schools. ERIC/CASS Digest.
Career counseling in middle and high schools should be tailored to the unique characteristics of adolescents during those tumultuous years when they begin to learn more about themselves. Establishing a rapport and building a relationship are key first steps for school counselors working with adolescents and their career aspirations. Individuals and counselors often find that navigating career information can be both complicated and time consuming. The National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee (NOICC), together with the state Occupational Coordinating Committees (SOICCs), contributes an Internet database of information and links to other sites that further enhance career knowledge. The North Carolina SOICC, in collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and the Commission on Workforce Preparedness/Job Ready, has been in the process of integrating CX-Online into schools statewide since 1997. This digest provides suggestions for how to get started with a computer-based counseling program, how to use CX-Online daily, and how to keep the program going year-to-year. (MKA)
