Oregon Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, Salem.
This booklet is a composite of the major presentations and activities that were included in three workshops for counselors in Oregon schools, community colleges, and social service agencies that dealt with occupational and educational trends for the 1990s. Provided first is a summary of a series of small group discussions that focused on projected occupational trends for the next 15 years, changes in the American work force that have occurred since the end of World War II, the occupational and educational information most frequently sought by students and clients, and the occupational information most often used by counselors. The texts of the following six conference papers are presented: "Opening the Doors: Career Myths," by Tom Fauria; "Opening the Doors: Occupational Trends," by Tom Lynch; "Opening the Doors: Occupational Trends," by Ed Bissell; "Educational Trends," by Verne Duncan; "Opening the Doors: Educational Trends," by Dick Pizzo; and "Educational Trends: Visions for the '90s" by Dr. Ethel Simon-McWilliams. Also included in the booklet are a two-page bibliography of labor market information resources; answers to the pre- and posttests that were used to measure the competency gains of workshop participants, a summary of the participants' competency gains, and a list of participants at the three workshops.
