Career Decision-Making Difficulties Of Senior High School Students In Koforidua Municipality

ABSTRACT

The main motivation for this research was the researcher’s desire to know the career decision-making difficulties of Senior High School (S.H.S) students in Koforidua Municipality. The descriptive survey method was employed for conducting the study. The multi-stage sampling technique was used to select a sample of 364 senior high school students from Koforidua Municipality. Data were collected mainly by the use of an adapted questionnaire. Means, standard deviation, frequency counts, rank order, t-test and analysis of variance were used in the analysis of data. The study found that dysfunctional myths were the most prevailing difficulties that senior high school students encountered in their career decision-making. Also, there was no significant difference in S.H.S students’ career decision-making difficulties on the basis of their preferred careers. There was no significant difference in S.H.S students’ career decision-making on the basis of their programme of study, and on the basis of their class. In view of the findings, it was recommended that the Ministry of Education should make room for more counsellors at Senior High School level who would champion the cause of career guidance. Also, school counsellors have been enjoined to make conscious efforts to demystify students’ dysfunctional career myths which have been found in the study to be their most prevailing career decision-making difficulties.
