The counseling program assists students in achieving career maturity. Career development is a continuous process that takes into consideration the individual’s personal needs and resources, as well as the social and economic needs of society. People differ in habits, abilities, and personalities; and by virtue of these differences each person can qualify for a variety of occupations, and each occupation can accommodate a variety of people. Work satisfaction and social adjustment depend upon the extent to which the individuals find adequate outlets for their abilities, interests, and values. Career development begins when the individual realizes that an occupation can help meet personal needs.
Counselors assist individuals in examining the choices available to them, gain first-hand knowledge about occupations, and arrive at a satisfactory career and technical education plan.
