Increasing the career choice readiness of young adolescents: an evaluation study


Hirschi, A; Läge, D (2008). Increasing the career choice readiness of young adolescents: an evaluation study. International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, 8(2):95-110.

Abstract

A career workshop that applies models of the Cognitive Information Processing Approach (Sampson, Reardon, Peterson, & Lenz, 2004) and incorporates critical ingredients (Brown and Ryan Krane, 2000) to promote the career choice readiness of young adolescents was developed and evaluated with 334 Swiss students in seventh grade applying a Solomon four group design with a three-month follow-up. Participants significantly increased their performance in terms of career decidedness, career planning, career exploration, and vocational identity. Implications for evaluation research and counselling practice are presented.
