Abstract

This qualitative study investigated key features of the Students’ Career Development Association (SCDA) in a Chinese mainland university. This university has been recognized for its pioneering achievements in career guidance. The operations and development of the SCDA were explored to determine how career guidance provided by the association enhances students’ career competencies. Results provided a paradigm that other universities could use for reference when developing career guidance services operated by students. The study contributes to the exploration of career guidance in university contexts.
