The Career Information Service. A Guide to Its Development and Use.
Circle, Duncan F.; And Others
This volume emerges from three collaborative prjects developed in the Newton, Massachusetts public schools. The Career Information Project attempted to develop improved procedures for acquiring, processing, and disseminating career information. The Follow-Up Program designed and implemented as system for conducting comprehensive follow-up studies of Newton students. A third project developed a job placement service for Newton secondary-school students. Because of the strong interrelationships of these three projects, in 1967-1968, they were coordinated in a single Career Resource Center. This document provides theoretical background for the services, describes briefly the projects as developed in Newton, and presents guidelines for the development of similar services in other school systems. A major bibliographic index of materials assembled and used in the Career Resource Center is also included. (Author)
