A Survey of the Occupational Interests of Junior College Students.
Kingsley, G. Gordon; Bellezza, Francis S.
The General College Studies, v4 n5 1967-1968
To develop better occupational programs--especially paraprofessional--the college surveyed the interests of 421 students in the General College (Spring 1967). The students were asked to identify their occupational interests on entering college, their current interests, and to indicate whether these had changed or ramained constant. They were also asked what other programs would interest them if offered. They were further asked to express their interest in two career sequence programs now available (Dental Assisting, Marketing), in two that would be available for 1968-69 (Secretarial, Horticultural), and in any of six other sequences in various stages of development (Technical, Business, Foods, Police Science, Human Services Aide, and Education Aide). The responses to these questions are shown in tables. Such factors as age, number of credits attempted, sex, and employment status were also taken into account. (HH)
