This paper is presented as a conceptual practice analysis of an experiential learning activity that took place during the fall 2011 academic term. Graduate students registered in a graduate-level career counseling course at a major Southeastern university were given the opportunity to conduct one-on-one career consultations with students enrolled in an academic and career planning course at a local technical college. Peer debriefing and student reflections following the consultation sessions indicate that a career consultation component embedded in a career development course may be effective in building self-efficacy and reinforcing career interests in students.
