This document contains a career education resource guide for junior high school students which is designed to build career awareness by means of occupational narratives, evaluative questions, activities, and career games. The information is presented in the following fourteen occupational clusters: industrial production occupations; office occupations; service occupations; education occupations; sales occupations; construction occupations; transportation occupations; scientific and technical occupations; mechanics and repairers; health occupations; social scientists; social service occupations; performing arts, design, and communications occupations; and agriculture, forestry, and fishery occupations. Based on interviews with actual workers, the occupational narratives emphasize what people do on the job, how they feel about it, and the importance of knowing oneself when considering a career. This resource guide can be used in middle schools, junior high classrooms, career resource centers, or youth programs run by community, religious, and business organizations. (BM)
