A REGIONAL CAREER INFORMATION CENTER, DEVELOPMENT AND PROCESS.
PIERSON, GLEN N.; AND OTHERS
THE CENTER WAS ESTABLISHED TO COLLECT, ABSTRACT, SYNTHESIZE, PRODUCE, STORE, AND DISSEMINATE CAREER INFORMATION TO HIGH SCHOOLS AND JUNIOR COLLEGES IN SAN DIEGO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA. A STUDY WAS MADE TO DETERMINE THE TYPE OF CAREER INFORMATION DESIRED BY STUDENTS AND COUNSELORS. THE INFORMATION WAS PUT ON MICROFILM APERTURE CARDS. EACH CARD CONTAINS FOUR REDUCED 8 BY 11 INCH PAGES. IN ADDITION, SELECTED OCCUPATIONAL PARAMETERS ARE KEY PUNCHED INTO THE CARD. TWO APERTURE CARDS ARE PREPARED FOR EACH OCCUPATION AND CONTAIN PHOTOGRAPHS OF LOCAL WORKERS ON THE JOB, A LIST OF CRITERIA WHICH JOB ASPIRANTS MUST MEET, A DESCRIPTION OF THE OCCUPATION, ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES, TRAINING REQUIRED, SALARY, A LISTING OF LOCAL TRAINING INSTITUTIONS, A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF LOCALLY PRODUCED STUDIES AND SURVEYS RELATING TO THE FIELD, AND A LISTING OF COMMUNITY RESOURCE PEOPLE WORKING IN THE OCCUPATION WHO HAVE AGREED TO TALK ABOUT THEIR JOBS WITH STUDENTS. INFORMATION ON APPROXIMATELY 200 OCCUPATIONS IS BEING DISSEMINATED TO 12 SECONDARY SCHOOLS NOW PARTICIPATING IN THE PROJECT. THIS DOCUMENT APPEARED IN "VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE QUARTERLY," VOLUME 15, NUMBER 3, MARCH 1967. (PS)
