Complexities of Career Development 2
The purpose of this research is to explore the increasing role of career development services and
career counselors in today's increasingly diverse and complex career environment. In addition to
the review of the existing literature in this area, original interviews were conducted with a
purposive sample of career counseling professionals in the Career Counseling Center at the
University of North Texas. Interviews were conducted with four career development specialists
as well as the director and assistant director of the center. The first major finding of the research
is that the career counseling services are under-utilized by the students are UNT, which is ironic
since the cost of using these services is included in student fees. Second, students tend to
misunderstand the purpose of career counseling. Many believe incorrectly that the
careercounseling specialist will choose their careers for them, when in reality, the purpose of
career counseling is to help the clients discover their career paths for themselves using the tools
resources the counseling center can provide.
