Abstract

This internship report provides a comprehensive reporting of the professional activities engaged in during a thirteen-week internship period at Memorial University Regional College at Corner Brook, September 1976 to December 1976. As well, the report includes an assessment of these activities as they relate to the professional goals and objectives for the internship as stated in the internship proposal which was submitted to and approved by the Department of Educational Psychology, Memorial University, August 1976. -- The results of the research study conducted during this period are also detailed and discussed. The primary finding was that a Career Awareness Programme, as provided by the intern to a group of eleven college students, resulted in significant improvement in attitudes toward the world of work and increased career awareness of the important components of informed career choice. These outcomes for the study were measured by the attitude and competence scales of the Crites Career Maturity Inventory. -- Chapter I provides an introduction to the internship, outline of the report, internship setting, rationale, duration, supervision and objectives of the internship. Chapter II gives an evaluation and analysis of the internship regarding the following: orientation involvement in programmes, individual counselling, group counselling, group and individual testing, faculty and staff involvement, community involvement, taping, supervision and evaluation. Chapter III reports on the research component giving an introduction, the rationale, review of related literature, objectives, a definition of career awareness, development and implementation, instrumentation, analysis of data, results and conclusions and the limitations of the study. Chapter IV concludes the report with a summary, bibliography and appendix.
