To answer the question "How are we doing?" is often a very difficult, and at best, extremely subjective issue.
Many centers have barely enough staff to properly "self assess" their operational programming objectively.
A few years ago, several Career professionals "teamed" to produce a Career Services Evaluation Tool which allows an operation to do a "self assessment/review" and evaluate key services and programs common to most career centers.
Key areas of emphasis were extracted and revised from the NACE "Sourcebook for Conducting Evaluations and Measurements of Career Services, 1995" in order to be a practical tool for use by office with limited staffing and resource. Efforts to again revise and update this tool will be made during the 2008-2009 academic year.
