Abstract : The present research is an exploration of the relationships among career counseling, organizational commitment, and career satisfaction. Questionnaires returned by 5051 Navy Aviation Officers contained items forming the above three scales as part of a larger study of career retention of high quality Navy Officers. Results indicate that there is a strong correlation between organizational commitment and career satisfaction, but the relationships of these two correlates with career counseling is weak. Also, an argument is made that career counseling is actually career advice confounded with internal recruiting. Implications for a redefinition of career counseling are discussed. (Author)
