January 2011 RoundTable

December 27th, 2010 No comments

According to Internet World Stats, approximately 75% of North Americans are online, and with so many websites, blogs, apps, and tools ‘out there’, it’s difficult to keep up to date. This RoundTable addresses how we utilize technology in our work. Please come and share your stories, resources, and favorite tech tools.

Resources to consider:

• “The advancement in computer-assisted techniques greatly enriches career assessment and intervention. Counselors are relieved from the tedious task of data entry and analysis, and, therefore, can focus more time on facilitating clients’ awareness of themselves by explaining the assessment results. The recent wide use of the Internet makes it possible to share and distribute information in a much more efficient way. Another achievement of technology is the development and improvement of computer-based career planning systems” (Tang, 2003).

• “‘Space, the Final Frontier’ from Star Trek is still in the future, but ‘Cyberspace, the New Frontier’ is her and invading our lives in unimaginable, exciting, and distressing ways. It is impacting our personal, social, emotional, occupational, and recreational lives, and we can choose to ride the wave to whatever destination, try to guide its path, or stand fast for business as usual” (Miller, McDaniels, 2001).

• “The Internet can be used as a tool in career counseling to help clients investigate their interests, career options, employment statistics, and educational as well as occupational opportunities.”
o http://jtc.colstate.edu/vol2_2/pelling.htm
• “Using the Internet is an important task for career counselors to undertake because it presents many opportunities for supporting career counseling activities on a global level, including online career assessments, increased occupational information, specialized career web-sites for populations such as women and minorities, virtual job fairs, job search strategies, as well as job search difficulties for today’s job seeker” (Osborn, Zalaquett).
o http://jtc.colstate.edu/Vol4_1/Osborn/Osborn.htm
• “Interest inventories, ability test, value surveys, developmental indices”
o http://eec.edc.org/cwis_docs/NEWS_ARTICLES_JOURNALS/Career_Development_Qrtly/Savickas.pdf
• “Career counseling was one of the first areas to incorporate technology as a tool in the counseling process. Career counseling continues to be the forerunner in technology-assisted counseling due to assessment packages and the Internet. Assessment packages self-score, produce result reports, save time, and can reduce scoring errors. The Internet offers counselors access to a plethora of information and resources addressing career and employment information… Career counseling today appears to require counselors and clients to be technically competent” (Bullock).
