This publication for career counselors is an easy-to-use, practical guide to identifying useful websites, incorporating them into career planning services, and gaining awareness of ethical concerns. "Overview: Websites in Support of Career Planning" (JoAnn Harris-Bowlsby) describes four categories of career planning websites: assessment, database searches, information gathering, and communication. For each type, website capabilities and counselor/career development facilitator involvement are detailed. "Sample Websites" (Margaret Riley Dikel) identifies and describes specific websites, organized by the four categories. "Potential Problems and Ethical Concerns" (James P. Sampson, Jr.) discusses the following: the quality of resources and services offered on the Internet, individual readiness for Internet use, availability of user support when needed, credentials of resource and service providers, lack of counselor awareness of local conditions and events, confidentiality and user privacy, and equality of access to Internet-based career resources and services. "Models of Use of the Internet in Career Planning Services" (JoAnn Harris-Bowlsbey) addresses use of websites in conjunction with one-to-one counseling, group approaches, and computer-based career information and guidance systems. Appendixes include guidelines for Internet use for career information and planning services, standards for the ethical practice of counseling on the Web, and an index. (YLB)
