The Evolution of a Distance Career Counseling Model: Implications for Training, Practice and Supervision of Cybercounselors.
Malone, James F.; Miller, Karen S.; Miller, Randy M.
This document describes a distance career counseling program developed over several years by a multidisciplinary team of career counseling, technology, and business development experts. The program, called ReadyMinds, provides personalized distance career counseling to a range of clients: undergraduate and graduate students as well as alumni seeking to make career changes. The counselors employ a proprietary methodology and a structured program that maximize the use of real world resources. ReadyMinds helps clients focus on their current and future career planning and provides them with concrete career development strategies to help them achieve their goals. The program differs from open-ended counseling relationships in that it is a need-based approach focusing on more immediate goals. It is structured to allow both client and counselor to move quickly towards developing a plan of action. This document chronicles the development of the program, and depicts the services provided to a typical client. (Contains 12 references.) (Author/ADT)
