Abstract (Summary)

As the workforce becomes more competitive, it becomes increasingly imperative that students are equipped with information that will aid in making sound postsecondary decisions. Current research has suggested that the earlier students are exposed to career orientation and counseling, the more prepared they will be to choose an appropriate college/career selection. The primary focus of this study was to explore relationships between career counseling/career orientation and postsecondary decision-making. Results of the study indicate that providing career counseling to students earlier in high school will positively influence high school students' postsecondary decision-making.
