This book on vocational counselling has been specially written to help the thousands of girls and boys who, when they pass out of colleges and universities, have to make a serious choice about a career. Lack of proper counselling often leads to round pegs landing up in square holes and they become misfits leading to frustration in their lives. Because of growing unemployment, many young men and women are forced to take up jobs for which they are not suited. It is only the professional vocational counsellor who can guide such people properly and this importance has been widely understood in the west where special tests for measuring interests, personality, aptitudes and vocational ability have been devised. This book takes off from the western concepts and ideas and adapts them to the prevailing Indian conditions.
It contains various useful tests for finding out the academic and mental abilities, personality, interests and vocational skill. The role of clinical psychology in vocational counselling has been brought out in vivid detail along with integrated tests and counselling interviews.
