The complex and changing nature of the world of work poses a great challenge to the young learners today. Many students in secondary schools experience difficulties in making informed career decisions due to lack of adequate career decisions due to lack of adequate career information and guidance which hampers their career development. The study recommends that there is need for the teacher counselors to be professionally trained in career guidance and counseling so as to adequately assist their students to make informed career decisions. There is need for the schools to equip the guidance and counseling department with adequate and necessary career information resources in order to diversify the students’ level of career awareness and exploration.
