GAMBOA, Vitor; PAIXAO, Maria Paula  and  JESUS, Saúl Neves de. Effectiveness of a career intervention program for career exploration. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2011, vol.12, n.2, pp. 153-164. ISSN 1984-7270.

For students attending vocational education courses, career exploration might be considered an important facilitator of the subjective organization of their training experience. For this reason, we implemented a career intervention program, aiming at improving the vocational exploratory activities by a group of high school students. In order to evaluate the impact of that program on the different dimensions of career exploration, a study with a quasi-experimental (pre-test/post-test) design was conducted, with non equivalent groups. Overall, the results seem relevant, since the career intervention had a positive and significant impact relating the two major dimensions of career exploration: environment exploration and self exploration.

Keywords : career intervention; career exploration; training; technological courses.
