How important is career counseling in schools and colleges?

Does career counseling make a difference in schools and colleges? Have you been counseled in school or college? If not, do you wish you had been counseled? Did you visit a professional counselor to decide what you wanted to do for a career or did you always know? Is it important for all students to take professional help in deciding one's future and career?

I look at this one the same way I look at other educational questions... it really depends on the individual for me. I never had one in high school, but I was always really driven and knew exactly what I had wanted in life and what I wanted out of school... there are others, though, who are not as confident as that. You would probably benefit from those type of counseling sessions or advice. I think that if a student feels the need to do it, and can gain foresight and direction from it, then it can be very beneficial... it would be up to the individual to seek out that help and following it.

Yes it is very much important. Students need guidance. They have so many options. They need assurance which can come if you make them confident enough to choose. Secondly, some things are hidden inside your personality which you don't notice but counselor can.
