Designing a Model for Community College Placement. Proceedings of a Career Placement Workshop.
Larsen, Howard B., Ed.; Hunter, Jean, Ed.
Placement services are vital if the community college is to fulfill its promise of helping individual students identify their potential in the world of work. Little has been done to facilitate a student's task of successfully implementing his college training in the occupational marketplace. Several papers from a workshop of the Northwest Community College Placement Association suggest that community colleges are unable to borrow placement concepts and practices wholesale from 4-year institutions. Transplanting existing program models would not meet the special problems and circumstances of the 2-year institution. A discussion of the ideal components in developing a guidance-oriented community college placement service resulted in a felt need to first clarify the role of placement in community colleges and then to have further workshops to (1) develop the ideals discussed, (2) suggest methods of implementation, (3) develop individual differences among colleges, (4) discuss problem areas, and (5) summarize goals and objectives.
