Comparison of career decision-making difficulties of university students with provision and non-provision of career guidance and counseling services
This study investigated career decision-making difficulties (CDMD) of undergraduate university students having provision and non-provision of career guidance and counseling services (CGCS). Final year undergraduate university students (N = 306) were selected through simple random sampling from two universities identified through Career Services Checklist. CDMD were measured through a questionnaire developed by Gati & Saka, 2001. Results revealed that students having non-provision of career guidance and counseling services had high level of CDMD as compared to students having non-provision of career guidance and counseling services. A significant difference was also found on the subscales of CDMD questionnaire (lack of readiness, lack of information and inconsistent information). Study has important implications in terms of determining the need to establish career development centers (CDC) and provide career related services to mitigate CDMD of students.
