Abstract:
This study presents information gathered from a follow-up survey of master's degree graduates in Counseling and Guidance from the years 1986, 1987, and 1988. Results are compared to a previous follow-up survey of graduates from the same program. Participants provided information via a questionnaire regarding demographics, current and past employment, credentialing, counseling clientele, program satisfaction, professional involvement, and preparation for client concerns. Results indicate that graduates are older than those who graduated 12-13 years ago with increasing numbers of women entering the field. Private practice, agencies, and hospitals have emerged as a significant employment setting. Today's graduates appear to be encountering a wider variety of client concerns and also appear to feel more prepared for those concerns than the graduates of 12-13 years ago. Conclusions and implications are drawn for the practitioners and the counselor preparation institution from which they graduated.
