Based on this finding, it was recommended that parents, community and teachers should try and encourage students to seek information on career choice rather than parading peer advice and also sufficient information career should be made available to students. The researchers also recommended that parental supervision should be encouraged and some gender bias should be abolished. On the part of the postgraduate students, it was encouraging that they learn to belief in their self-actualization. Lastly, schools and universities should encourage sensitization on campuses to create their awareness for the need of career counseling so that many students can be better aware of the services of a guidance counselor.
