Abstract

Choosing a career affects individuals' social life deeply in terms of many dimensions. However, choosing the right career is becoming increasingly difficult given the existence of an increasing number of professions and training opportunities. Consequently, the importance of career orientation increases. In this study, a system that can automatically offer vocational guidance has been developed. This new system is referred to as WEB-CGS (web-based carrier guidance system) and works as a fuzzy logic based web service. The aim is that it will make it easier for an individual to choose the right profession. In this system, students' prior educational successes and teachers' views were integrated in a manner which made it possible to identify the students' professional interests and capacities. The system forecasts vocational school students' interest with regard to Information Technology, Electrics-Electronics, Accounting, and Automotive. Promising results were obtained with regard to 300 unbiased 9th grade students in terms of orienting them towards an appropriate profession.
