VOCATIONAL PROBLEM-SOLVING EXPERIENCES FOR STIMULATING CAREER EXPLORATION AND INTEREST. FINAL REPORT.
KRUMBOLTZ, JOHN D.; AND OTHERS
TO MOTIVATE INTEREST IN CAREER EXPLORATION, FIVE SETS OF JOB SIMULATION MATERIALS WERE DEVELOPED AND TESTED FOR ACCOUNTING, X-RAY TECHNOLOGY, MEDICAL LABORATORY TECHNOLOGY, SALES, AND BANKING. EACH "CAREER KIT" PRESENTED PROBLEMS REPRESENTATIVE OF EACH OCCUPATION AND THE BACKGROUND INFORMATION NEEDED TO GUARANTEE THAT MOST SUBJECTS COULD SOLVE THEM. HYPOTHESES COMPARING PROBLEM-SOLVING APPROACHES WITH ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES WERE TESTED IN THREE STUDIES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT--(1) PROBLEM-SOLVING "CAREER KITS" CONSISTENTLY PRODUCED MORE INTEREST AND MORE OCCUPATIONAL INFORMATION SEEKING THAN CONTROL TREATMENTS, AND (2) SUBJECTS FROM LOWER SOCIO-ECONOMIC SCHOOLS CONSISTENTLY GAVE MORE POSITIVE REACTIONS THAN SUBJECTS FROM MIDDLE-CLASS SCHOOLS, PARTICULARLY IN RESPONSE TO THE PROBLEM-SOLVING MATERIALS.
