The study investigated counseling practices in monitoring vocational behaviors of students in tertiary institution. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The subjects for the study comprise 72 female and 43 male counselors drawn from both Nsukka and Obollo Afor education zones of Enugu State. The instrument for data collection was questionnaire, mean score, and t-test statistics were used in data analysis. Results showed that the approaches counselors use in equipping students with vocational information for career choice are media outlet, individual counseling, group counseling, career day/week, field trip/excursion, assemblies, seminars/workshop, and orientation. It equally revealed that counselors do not use any follow-up strategy in monitoring students' behaviour after imparting vocational information to them. Implications of the findings were highlighted and recommendations were made. (Contains 4 tables.)
