Abstract:

Careers counsellors in secondary schools can make a significant contribution to their students' preparation for the transition from school to further education. The author observes that many students in Australian schools now have a 'manic obsession' with scores, a good job and good pay rather than enjoying their youth and looking forward to the future. She presents some practical strategies to help students prepare well for senior years at school and for the challenges beyond. The focus is on preparing young people to leave school feeling optimistic and with self-esteem relatively intact regardless of their final score.
