Pennsylvania’s Careerlink is provided by Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Workforce and Development and is well known for its comprehensive list of job openings; but in addition to this, it also provides free training, such as interviewing techniques, and lists all of the institutions and programs of higher education in a given area. This website is useful for finding jobs, finding training and resources, and searching for programs of higher education. This is a must-have resource for all career counselors. {Rebecca}

The Pennsylvania Code for Licensure of Professional Counselors contains the legal requirements for one to become a licensed professional counselor, including educational and examination requirements. Also included is information for licensed professional counselors on sexual misconduct, mandatory child abuse reporting, and continuing education requirements.

The UAB Career Services site portrays information regarding assistance for those utilizing or seeking career counseling. I found this site useful because of its analysis of career counseling instruments and wide array of data including topics such as personal abilities, occupational interests, values, market trends and lifestyles. ~Nick~

Pennsylvania Office of Vocational Rehabilitation-Allegheny provides thorough information for those persons with a variety of impairments to learn more about attaining gainful employment , and the assistance they can obtain through the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR). Rehabilitation services are provided in an individualized manner. Each person receives the services they need in order to become employable. Services include: Diagnosis; Counseling and Guidance; Restoration Training; Placements; Post employment services. I have seen the results of what OVR services provide for individuals with physical and mental challenges, and I have seen the eyes of those who have seen success through OVR.

Services are provided on an individualized basis. The OVR counselor, during face-to-face interviews, assists customers in selecting their choice of vocational goals, services and service providers. {Tamera}

Career Center is extremely helpful in explaining what a career counselor is, how to find a licensed counselor and what to expect from the relationship. If a counselor who was not proficient in the area of career counseling needed access to some information to refer to their patient to explain why they needed a special counselor for their career uncertainties this would be an ideal site. The site would also explain the type of agenda that they would go through with a perspective counselor. I myself merely cold called some career counselors and interviewed them over the phone, but after scanning this site realized there were very important questions which I did not know to ask. At the time I was interested in the average time it takes to discover what a person should be and how much does it cost. Luckily, I landed in very capable hands. (Laura)

College Grad Job Hunter is useful for career counselors at a college or university setting or for a traditional career counselor to refer to a recent college graduate. The site has various links to career preparation, job postings, resumes and cover letters, interviews and negotiations and many others. The site also has various links to internships and entry level jobs which is useful and timesaving rather than doing large general searches on other sites. As a career counselor, this would be a good site to keep oneself informed about opportunities for the students and enable one to counsel accordingly. (Laura)

Web's Directory of Career Directions-Career Resource Center is a site to end all other sites. This site will literally link you to 2500 other sites. The site is useful for Job Seekers, Employers, individuals seeking a professional job or other. It is also a useful tool for a career counselor who is actually at the end of the client relationship and is assisting with the job search. The site has so many useful links such as Career Directories, Jobs on the Web, Learning Resources, Career Resources, and a specific link to a person's region. It's virtually every potential career web site combined and organized into areas of usefulness. (Laura)

National Association of Colleges and Employers is a thorough link for career and job related sites that career counselors can utilize with college students as well as alumni. What I liked about this site was the diversity of the links which included: Professional Associations, Resources for persons with disabilities, Graduate and Professional School recommendations and sites, Professional standards for both the College Career Counselor as well as the prospective employer coming to campus to interview, Job Fair notifications, and a future job outlook for career choices. The site is more geared for the counselor but could be utilized by the student. While I am certain that a lot of the information is probably in journals, books, and other publications, it is very timesaving to find all the information on one web site. (Laura)

This is The Wall Street Journal Executive Career Site. Although this site came up under career counseling it doesn’t seem to offer much in the way of counseling. The site is more geared to job hunting and resume building. They do however for a fee offer a few assessment tolls and a 30 minute counseling session. My thoughts… I wouldn’t pay for what I could get for free at CareerLinks. (Nicole)>
