Man in search of comfort struggle to meet up with good career and for this
to be achieved, it has to be started as early as possible. From the time man is born,
expectations abound to know what likely he will be able to do as he grows up. This
has to do with his natural behaviour and mental exercise display. This continues in
family/parents and other relaxation acting as counselling unit until the child goes in
to school. In school the teacher takes over the counselling, it is a continuous
exercise until one finds one‟s feet, then he can continue from there and equally be
in a position to guide and counsel others.
The stages where much work is carried out on counselling is in secondary
schools .This is a stage when a child is grown to be able to understand maturely
and when the child‟s attitude is fully studied in line with academic performance .
In all secondary school across the country , there exist a guidance and counsellor
office where people knowledgeable in the area of psychology are employed in
order to help advise the younger ones in school which way forward to their
future career . There people through class visitation, Observing students during
recreation and calling on them at intervals for questioning, came to know the
students betters and be able to guide and counsel them in their future career
probably in university or in any other area of endeavour.

The job of counselling in secondary school is not an easy job to be taking
into consideration the number students involved with respect to the number of staff
involved. It is always very difficult to handle all the students and to remember
everything about the students. This Counselling exercise needs a sophisticated
system for the operation of counselling alliterates some of the problem associated
with exercise.
Personal behaviour and area of interest, they keep very close marks with the
students to make sure that no stone is left unturned. This aspect of one‟s life is
taken very seriously in schools because that is mainly the reason people go to
school for the academics tests and examination only. The battle of career choice is
handed over to individual when he/she attain a stage of being able to duct for
himself what he/she really wants and how best possible to get such height. The
person can steer the wheels directly to his destination or deviate in the other way
due to carelessness or youthful exuberance; but the end justifies the means.
Sometimes, due to laxity and incapability on the side of the career guidance and
counsellor in schools, most of the students are led astray.
Hoyfield (1997) argues that a good career in life, makes a lot of meaningful
process in life. He queried „‟what is comfort and where comfort without a good
career‟‟. In his own views, it takes a long and rough way to arrive and clinch a
good career but when one finally gets to it, life comes to be what nature made it

be. He made it clear and that life is associated with a good career and that such a
career is what can give full meaning of life a priceless gift of nature. Statistics
shows that people who find good career are enjoying high standard of living and
the unlucky ones cry of frustration and negatives social factors that limits life.

1.1 Statement Of The Problem
The number of students involved in schools counselling are very
enormous and few staff in counselling cannot handle the job effectively.
It is always very easy to forget information about students and to reach all the
students, contributes and problems.
Another major problem of the counselling is information storage. The made
of storage of information observed from the students in different forms is not
reliable and this makes the counselling to apply guess work in trying to direct
students in their future career work.
This is a very big delay in taking decision on students concerning their
future career. This is also because referencing to students information for decision
making takes a very long time.


1.2 Aims/Objectives
The primary aim of this projects work is to provide lasting solution to the
problem affecting counselling exercise in secondary schools. The following
objectives below are the study
 To make the criteria and process involved in the exercise of counselling very
easy and flexible
 To carefully take care of the burden, the staff faces in trying to do the work
of counselling manually.
 To provide adequate enabling environment for counselling on student to
give them better career perspective
 To maintain adequate observed information on students for future reference
and quick decision taking.

1.3 Purpose Of The Study
The purpose of this project work is to probe into the developing a
counselling software for schools with a view of creating awareness of the use
computer in counselling with due consideration of this new technology


1.4 Significance Of The Study
This study is of numerous important to the guidance and counsellor
department and the society in general in different ways:
 It will help the counsellor to always direct the students in their best career
area with happiness because it will be result oriented.
 It will also help to eliminate the word frustration among the people which
is very common in the society.
 It will ease of the stress of the counsellor using his/her brain trying to store
information about different students in their large number and each
student‟s area of interest he/she is fit for.
 Using an automated system in this situation would be very efficient
especially in information storage.

1.5 Scope/ Delimitation Of The Study
The study covers the design and implementation of computerized career choice
counselling system in secondary schools.


1.6 Constraints / Limitations
The major constraints identified in the course of this work are as follows:
 There are many secondary schools in primitive/rural areas that have little or
no technological facilities in the school. Implementation of this system in
such a situation becomes a problem.
 There may also be staff in the school who do not have knowledge on proper
usage of computer. If such staff works in the guidance and counselling unit,
it would be cumbersome for him/her to operate the computerized system.
Recommended solution to these problems is that there should be a room for
proper training of personnel who cannot operate computers properly. Also,
government should help provide technological facilities in those schools in the
rural areas that have little or no level of technology.
