The term "vocational guidance" has been used very extensively and, perhaps, during the time it has been in use the meaning has been broadened and become much less specific than it was at first. The common meaning of the two words in the phrase "vocational guidance" suggests that we are concerned with helping persons to choose, prepare, enter into, and make progress in occupations. It is, in short, to help someone go some place and do something. The actual doing of this process is the meaning of this term, so now we can readily see that even though the words in themselves are simple in this individual implication, the combination produces a complex problem that the entire country is trying futilely to grasp and deal with intelligently and progressively. In as much as, leaders specializing in this field have made much progress during the last thirty years, a solution to this problem is being sought.
