Abstract: This poster session highlights how online teacher education programs incorporate meaningful career counseling and advising to students. A description of the elements of career counseling, the focus of advising through technology, and research-based strategies that can promote both effective and creative ways to prepare students for careers in education are included in the resources and poster accompanying this session. Teacher educators in online programs have a responsibility to not only prepare students to become teachers but also to prepare educators for careers inside and beyond the scope of traditional educational institutions.
