Using Technology to Deliver Career Development Services
AbstractThe field of career counselling faces nowadays a series of difficulties, therefore, to keep up with the 21st century requirements, both in the field of technology and social changes, researchers need to rethink the paradigms and recents concepts and elaborate new theories, techniques and approaches. Research objectives refer to the link between the score obtained at the Vocational Identity Questionnaire (adapted after U-MICS, 2008), and the use of the online information technology for career (ITC) at 16 adolescents in the senior year at high school. The numbers obtained at the Identity Commitments Scale (U-MICS) have been compiled into SPSS using the T test for pair independent sample pre and post intervention. The results suggest a potentially important difference between these conditions (pre-post intervention), the vocational identity score being significantly higher (mean= 3.994) after the intervention, compared to the before intervention score (mean= 3.2265). In conclusion, the access to asynchronous technologies in career making decisions are becoming a critical step in overseeing the student needs.
