Abstract

This study was designed to explore and compare the career related needs of rural and urban youth upon entering a post-secondary institution. Subjects were 101 university students who had completed at least their first year of university study. Subjects were asked to complete a questionnaire developed from a list of perceived career related needs identified in a study by Jeffery and Lehr (1993). While few significant urban/rural differences were found, a number of unexpected outcomes related to the career preparedness of all youth were noted. In addition, several areas needing further study are discussed.
