Career and Labor Market Information: Key to Improved Individual Decision Making.
Drier, Harry N., Ed.; Pfister, Linda A., Ed.
The increased complexity of the work place and the technology for use in storing and dispensing career and labor market information led to the development of this monograph. Based on the problems and solutions identified through a current literature search and national symposium, this monograph contains (1) a framework for the establishment or improved use of labor market information; (2) specific guidelines for the establishment, operation, and evaluation of new uses of labor market information for guidance and counseling purposes; (3) specific examples of effective methods and techniques of using labor market information for guidance purposes; (4) specific examples of ways of implementing multi-agency collaboration in the use of labor market information on training and career guidance; and (5) a set of recommendations and priorities for future education and labor initiatives. (Four presentations delivered at the national symposium are summarized in the introduction.) (BM)
