Abstract

This article is a report on the perceived correspondence between of career development learning and work-integrated learning programs that were delivered by career services in Australian higher education institutions. The study entailed a questionnaire survey of representatives of university career services. The questionnaire addressed the extent to which the elements of career development learning were present in work-integrated learning programs. Results of the survey indicated convergence of the career development learning domains of self-awareness and opportunity awareness, but relatively less integration of decision-making and transition learning. The article concludes with a call for further exploration into how universities and employers view career development learning in work-integrated learning programs.
