OLIVEIRA, Christiane Maria Ribeiro de  and  NEIVA, Kathia Maria Costa. Career Guidance: Evaluation of a pilot project for career guidance of students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2013, vol.14, n.1, pp. 133-143. ISSN 1984-7270.

Several specialists emphasize the importance of the role of educational institutions in the career guidance of their students. The present work shows the evaluation of a career guidance project developed with a group of ten adolescents, 16 to 18 years old, enrolled in the penultimate grade of technical integrated courses in a public career education institution. This project aimed to facilitate the students' career development and the building of their career project. Nine group meetings were held, in which several specific tools and techniques for career guidance were used. The project was evaluated through the Maturity Scale for Professional Choice and the results showed an increase in the students' level of maturity after the intervention. Based on those results, a plan is to be developed to widen the scope of the project to attend students enrolled in other levels of career education.

Keywords : career guidance; occupational choice; project evaluation; career education; maturity for professional choice.
