White Papers

Two recent white papers by Dr. JoAnn Harris-Bowlsbey and the Kuder research faculty provide insights on career guidance program implementation within the United States and evidence showing the cost-effectiveness of career guidance programs:


  • Career Guidance & Its Implementation in the United States
    Establishing a cost- effective career guidance program requires careful planning as well as the establishment of accountability measures and guidelines for sustainability. This white paper summarizes the rationale, structure and content, modes of delivery, types of service providers, and major theoretical model for career guidance in the United States.
  • Evidence for Career Guidance Cost-Effectiveness
    In these times of tight budgets and requirements for accountability, it is necessary to carefully design and implement a data collection system that accurately assesses the cost-effectiveness of career guidance programs at local, regional, and national levels. This white paper reviews the criteria, methodologies, and challenges related to such evaluation.
