A conference on guidance, counseling, and placement services comprised the first step in developing programs to serve the five populations identified in the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968. Those populations are (1) high school youth, (2) those who have completed or discontinued their formal education and are preparing to enter the labor market, (3) those who have already entered the labor market but need to upgrade their skills or learn new ones, (4) those with special educational handicaps, and (5) those in postsecondary schools. Manuscripts are included for the following presentations: (1) "Career Guidance in the 1970's" by Felix C. Robb, (2) "What Do We Really Know About Career Development?" by Samuel H. Osipow, (3) "Restructuring of Educational Practices Related to Objectives for Guidance and Placement for Career Development" by L.G.

Herr, (5) "Operational Goals, Policies, and Functions for Guidance as Seen from the Vocational Education Amendments of 1968" by Kenneth B. Hoyt.
