Identification and Analysis of Emerging Occupations in Marketing and Distributive Education. Final Report.
A study was conducted to identify new and emerging jobs in marketing and distributive education. Two job survey booklets were constructed and used to collect job information from 397 businesses and 318 distributive education coordinators in Texas. Additional investigations were made to determine if coordinator's background or school location was related to the jobs where coordinators placed students for training. As a result of the surveys, over one hundred jobs were identified as new and emerging. These jobs were further investigated to develop job descriptions and employment requirements for each. In addition, it was found that the work experience of coordinators influences their placement activities and who they talk to about distributive education placement. Demographic and background data collected indicated that 52 percent of the coordinators are located in schools in low or lower to middle income communities. Also, 20 percent of the coordinators reported that 45 percent of their students are enrolled in distributive education to supplement family income. (LRA)
