Vermont State Dept. of Education, Montpelier.
Designed with the adult education instructor/supervisor in mind, this manual's purpose is to bring adult education courses into a career focus by providing a group guidance program. Divided into seven sessions, the program outlined in the manual aims to help individuals, with instructor or guidance counselor leadership, to clarify for themselves their values concerning (1) lifestyle; (2) what is wanted from work; (3) a practical definition of success; (4) how to make decisions with favorable outcomes; (5) making an inventory of skills, where these were learned and used; (6) desired working environment; (7) work options available to them; and (8) evaluation of personal options based on previous information. By means of exercises and homework assignments, the program is designed to lead participants to active engagement in career search and planning, covering topics that include resumes and cover letters, how to find "hidden jobs," conducting a job search, and handling interviews. Appendixes provide alternative ideas, discussion of individual counseling, and reading lists for leaders and participants. (CP)
