Abstract

The authors discuss a model of career advising based on noncognitive variables. Questionnaires were administered to 343 African-American, first-year students at a large eastern university to examine their needs and interests on a variety of topics including career and advising issues. The study found students most often reported going to college for job-related reasons. More males were likely to leave college to take a job than females while females were less sure of getting a job after graduation. The authors' recommendations include how to make referrals to a career counselor.
