REGIONAL CENTER FOR COLLECTION, SYNTHESIS AND DISSEMINATION OF CAREER INFORMATION FOR USE BY SCHOOLS OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY (DEVELOPMENTAL), JULY 1, 1966 - JUNE 30, 1967.
HOOVER, RICHARD; WHITFIELD, EDWIN A.
THE PROVISION OF OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION ON MICROFILM APERTURE CARDS (VIEW) IS VALUABLE TO BOTH STUDENTS AND COUNSELORS. THIS SYSTEM CAN INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE SCHOOL VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE SERVICE BECAUSE THE MATERIALS ARE EASY TO READ WITH CURRENT, WELL-ORGANIZED INFORMATION. COUNSELORS PERCEIVE VIEW MATERIALS AS AN AID WHICH SAVES TIME AND INCREASES THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE. THE VIEW SYSTEM ATTRACTS STUDENTS, WHO HAD NOT USED OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION FREQUENTLY, TO THE USE OF OCCUPATIONAL FILES. STUDENT REACTION TO THE PROJECT IS FAVORABLE. THE VIEW SYSTEM ALSO INCREASES INTERSTAFF PARTICIPATION. ACTIVITIES OF THE CAREER INFORMATION CENTER DURING THE 1966-67 YEAR HAVE SHOWN THAT--(1) A SUMMER WORKSHOP FOR COUNSELORS WHICH PROVIDES INSTRUCTION IN VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE AND EXPERIENCE IN ENTRY LEVEL OCCUPATIONS IS VALUABLE, (2) POSITIVE COMMUNITY REACTION TO THE VIEW PROJECT AND TO A SUMMER WORKSHOP EXISTS, AND (3) VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROVIDED BY THE JUNIOR COLLEGES IS PERCEIVED BY THE STUDENTS AS NECESSARY AND VALUABLE IN THEIR CHOSEN CAREER.
