Choosing a career is one of the biggest milestones in life, yet many young people are clueless about how to research the vast array of possibilities. Mary Ghiliani addresses this pressing need with a comprehensive guide to finding job information through the Internet. Web-Based Career Counseling opens with an extensive career selection questionnaire based on interests and abilities and then explains how to research career options using the Internet, with listings of over 400 career exploration web sites and information on 156 occupations. Recognizing the rich lode of information the Internet provides, this volume is an essential text for students, career counselors, and job seekers everywhere.
