This research adopted the experimental Post-test only Control group design. 120 Secondary Two girls from the Special stream, taking both English Language and Higher Chinese as first languages, were randomly assigned. The first experimental group (N=40) was given computer-assisted career guidance followed by group guidance. The second experimental group (N=40) received group guidance only. The last group (N=40) served as a control group having no career guidance. The experiment was done over four weeks with a total of four sessions for each experimental group. Each session lasted two hours.

A 12-item Career Self-awareness checklist measuring career interests, career values and career aptitudes was constructed and then administered after treatment. One-way ANOVA showed that there was significant difference between two experimental groups and control group (probability = 0.0001 and alpha = 0.05). But no significant difference between these two experimental groups. Yet the girls having computer-assisted career guidance followed by group guidance were more realistic in choosing tentative careers on Occupational Daydreams questionnaires that matched their Career Profile Inventories (72%).
