Djadali, Yas; Malone, James F.
The purpose of the present article is to demonstrate the need for distance career counseling services, and to present an evolving counseling model that combines the best practices of face-to-face career counseling with technology.

Ensuing discussion includes an examination of the following topics: client expectations and education regarding both face-to-face and distance career counseling services; the integration of technology with career counseling; counselor recruitment, training, and supervision; ethical issues and credentialing; assessments, web resources and written communication; appraisal of client satisfaction and program effectiveness; identification and handling of difficult situations; and the establishment of mutually beneficial partnerships among career services, business, and technology professionals.
