Specific career development competencies are listed for elementary, middle/junior high, and high school students, along with names and addresses of resource persons and a list of resource materials. Unit 4, "A Field Visit: Experiencing Components of a Self/Career Development Program," provides instructions for a school visit to gain hands-on experience with selected aspects of a K-12 self/career development program.
