This quick, 4-page paper coalesces the wide range of research on the topic of career exploration. Here’s a small excerpt:
“… let’s examine how career exploration early on can help set students up for fulfilling futures ahead. Oftentimes college is when students figure out how they want to spend their time in the working world after graduation. Is college really the ideal time for a career exploration experience though? Tuition costs of colleges and universities have been steadily increasing, plus a growing number of careers no longer require a four year degree, so it can be extremely efficient for students to gain an understanding about what they want to do for the next 5+ years of their life before making the decision to enroll in college. After all, how many people would say that what they thought they wanted to study in college did not turn out to be what they expected and had to change their major, costing them more time and money? … through learning the career pathway trajectory of a certain profession during career exploration, they can see if the education and certifications that are required will line up with their lifestyle goals. ”

“Having a system that is easy to work with and can adapt to the specific needs of a class is invaluable. I work with a number of students who have learning disabilities and special needs …We worked on a plan to modify assignments and oriented observers that could assist the students. This has resulted in faster evaluation of work submitted and better communication between the instructor, observers, and students. The success rate of the students has increased significantly since this collaboration.”

They encourage students to explore facets of their interests that they may otherwise not be able to explore; this allows students to learn something that tracks with what they may intend to do in the future.
