Advising. CAP Job Function.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.
This Job Function Book (Advising) is one of the 14 components (see note) of the Career Alert Planning (CAP) program, a set of individualized materials designed to help participants find out about themselves and about the kind of work for which they are suited. In this program, participants become acquainted with occupations that are representative of 10 basic job functions. They learn how these occupations relate to personal interests, abilities, skills, educational goals, experiences, and training. They consider the work conditions, salary, and employment outlook for each occupation. Finally, participants use this information to make decisions and plans about the careers they will pursue. This Job Function Booklet examines advising occupations, one of the 10 basic job functions explored in the series, and describes four occupations related to this function: lawyer, child care attendant, travel agent, and employment counselor. The booklet contains the following sections: (1) an "explore" section, which describes the advising job function and introduces the four occupations representative of it; (2) four "perform" sections, which contain work simulation activities related to each of the four occupations (e.g., "imagine you are a travel agent; your task is to write a bill for the airline and hotel reservations for two new clients"); these activities give participants "hands-on" experience in performing work-related tasks; and (3) four "decide" sections, which provide greater detail about the occupations and about working conditions, income, and education and experience required. Education and experience activities that can be undertaken by participants are suggested. (KC)
