Abstract

This report provides an overview of a counselling internship at Cabot College of Applied Arts, Technology, and Continuing Education. The primary activities described are those of individual counselling, research in the area of adult career development, and inservice training received by the student. The research project concentrated on the career counselling needs of adult students categorized according to gender, age, and level of education. Using a measure of career maturity – the Career Development Inventory (CDI) College and University Form – to help identify career counselling needs, results indicated several significant findings. The female students’ mean score on the Career Planning scale was significantly lower than the male students’ mean score, indicating a potential career counselling need. On the cognitive scales of the Career Development Inventory, mean scores increased as the level of education increased. No significant differences were evident on either of the eight CDI scales based on the variable of age. As discussed in the review of the literature, further research on the topic of adult career development and career maturity is needed.
