Coming Alive From Nine to Five: The Career Search Method.
Michelozzi, Betty Neville; Michelozzi, Peter J.
The concept of career search is envisioned as a means to personal growth rather than merely a choice of occupations. A career search program is described which sets up a basic foundation of self-assessment, exploring personal values, interests, and skills. Four inventories are described which can help individuals develop self-descriptions in terms of the work world. These inventories focus on personality traits, desired levels of complexity in regard to data, people and things; work qualities; and skills analysis. The inventory data are then connected with a chart of 66 job groups representing 40,000 job titles, showing the relationship between their qualities and job opportunities. This career counseling process also involves resumes, applications, interviews, and letters. Career counseling is viewed as an important aid to help individuals make thoughtful career decisions that lead to personal growth. (NRB)
