The study ascertained the impact of career counselling on job finding amongst graduates in the experimental and control groups. The quasi-experimental design guided the study. Four null hypotheses were formulated. The population of the study comprised all batch B 2012/2013 National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in Rivers, Enugu, and Osun states with a total number of ten thousand five hundred and seventy three (10,573) (Source: NYSC Statistics 2013). A sample of one thousand (1000) participants was drawn from the population using stratified random sampling technique. A job finding test (JFT) was developed by the researchers and used for data collection. The four hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance using independent t-test statistics. The results showed that participants who have experienced career counselling performed better than those that have not in the job finding test. This finding made it obvious that career counselling has significant impact on job finding amongst young graduates in Nigeria.
