A Comprehensive Career Needs Survey was designed to assess the career needs of junior high- and senior high-school students in Southern Alberta. The questionnaire explored career needs from the perspective of students, teachers, parents, counsellors, and administrators. An important aspect of the research was to examine how adolescents perceive the terms career and occupation, and to also determine if and how these perceptions evolve over time and through developmental stages.

This paper summarizes the results of a discussion on the topic of building future career development programs for adolescents. The discussion was held at the National Consultation on Career Development in Ottawa, Canada in January 2004. The session began with an overview of the career counselling needs of secondary students relative to the Comprehensive Career Needs Survey conducted in Southern Alberta. The session then provided participants with an opportunity to discuss the future directions for the career development of students in junior and senior high school. Specifically, participants were asked to share their thoughts and ideas on what future career development programs for adolescents should look like, what would be ideal and how the field could get there.
