The Internet is increasingly important for career counseling; however, thre are few suggestions for trainign graduate counseling students how to use this technology. This project sought to address that lack by having graduate counseling students use a structured interview with undergraduate volunteer clients to assess which needs could be met using the Internet. Graduate students then identified relevant Web sties and explore these in a meeting with the volunteer clients. Results of class surveys indicated that participants encountered few obstacles using the Internet and perceived the intervention to be useful. Implications for training graduate students in using the Internet for career counselling are discussed.
