In 1986, the National Center for Research in Vocational Education undertook a major research and development activity that attempted to address a number of the critical issues related to school and work. The result was the development of the Connections: School and Work Transitions package, of which this workbook is a part. The workbook presents information to assist young people in developing an experience profile or experience-based resume that documents both work and nonwork experiences and the skills, attitudes, and knowledge gained through these experiences. The Career Passport is a formal document that identifies, describes, and presents the many marketable skills young people have gained. It can be used by youth for applications (work, college, training programs), interviews, job searches, and other situations that call for a resume or a concise description of one's skills and abilities. For employers, colleges, and training institutions, the Career Passport provides improved information for screening, interviewing, and selecting applicants and increases their recognition of skill and knowledge being acquired through nonwork as well as work experiences.
