Career Counselling Development: A Case Study of an Innovative Career Counselling Tool
Papakota, Aikaterini
Industry and Higher Education, v30 n5 p327-333 Oct 2016
Promoting the use of new technologies in the career counselling process, the Career Services Office of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki has developed an easy-to-use career counselling guide containing multimedia applications. The purpose of this career guide, called "Career Counseling@Career Office of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki", is to support students and graduates in the development of their professional skills using interactive exercises and self-presentation sample tools. It also contains, in written and/or visual form, career information, success stories of fellow students and graduates and videos with advice and tips from human resources managers, recruiters and academic staff. The sections of the electronic guide are organized as "stations" that may help the student or graduate in career decision-making, planning and organizing job searches in Greece and abroad, identifying training opportunities and achieving career goals in general. This innovative application is used in combination with personal and group career counselling services. This article explains the rationale for the application in terms of its usage and the expanded functionality it offers career counsellors in higher education institutions.
