The Internet dramatically increases the access individuals have to resources and services for career planning. The problem, however, is that career planning resources found on the Internet vary in quality and appropriateness for different users. Some individuals may be better served if they seek assistance from a professional Career Counselor, Career Development Facilitator or Guidance Counselor. Additional information on this subject can be found in the National Career Development Association (NCDA) report, "NCDA Guidelines for the Use of Internet for Provision of Career Information and Planning Services."
