The Perceived Role of Technology in Career Guidance among Practitioners Who Are Experienced Internet Users
Vuorinen, Raimo; Sampson, James P.; Kettunen, Jaana
Australian Journal of Career Development, v20 n3 p39-46 Spr 2011
The increasing use of technology is placing new demands on career guidance practitioners. This article examines what changes, if any, have occurred in the perceptions of guidance practitioners regarding their role and the role of the internet in meeting guidance goals and delivering career guidance services. The data were collected in focus groups in 2001-2002 and a follow-up study in 2010. A total of seven focus groups were held. The data were analysed using combined methods. The results indicated that practitioners now observe that the need for differentiated service delivery modes is more explicit due to varied levels of readiness in decision-making and ICT literacy.
