Social and Economic Benefits of Career Development in Education, in Jamaica
Fyffe, Denise N.
At present in Jamaica, many of the graduates of secondary institutions enter the job market ill-equipped to access the opportunities available to them. For some, there is inadequate basic academic preparation; for most, there is inadequate career education. The world of work has grown very complex and numerous career options are open to students. Educational decisions made rather early in the school life of students will have a decisive influence on their access to careers of choice later on. It is important that career awareness, career exploration and career preparation activities be incorporated into their early education and this article makes an argument for such.
