How is the Internet Changing Careers Guidance? First Results of a Survey Amongst European Career Advisors.
An ongoing online survey is being conducted about how the Internet has changed career guidance for European career advisors and its impact in the following areas: (1) overall professional practice; (2) service to clients; (3) clients' development process and job searches; and (4) the services of individual organizations, including the delivery of those services. Of the 51 responses from career advisors between January 2002 and March 2003, 60% believe the Internet has had a high impact on their activities; 65% believe it has had a high to medium impact on their services to clients; 63% believe it has had a high to medium impact on the development and/or job searches of their clients; and 31% believe it has had a medium impact on the services offered by their organizations. Some of the ways in which the Internet has changed career guidance are as follows: it has increased the rapidity and amount of information available to practitioners; it had made colleagues and clients easier to contact; it can be used as a tool for professional development and training; and it can allow clients to search the web for what they need themselves. Respondents are quoted in English, Italian, and Portuguese. (MO)
