Career Counseling and Follow-up Study, Spring 1971.
Pacific Heights Adult School, San Francisco, CA.
This follow-up study of participants in the Career Workshop of the Pacific Heights Adult School is based on 117 responses to 453 questionnaires mailed in the Spring of 1971. Responses were analyzed by categories and numerical responses to the questions asked. The categories were: age, education, employment, occupations, occupations and education, years on job, different jobs, student use of other services, and positive and negative statemets. Results of the study show: (1) more women than men seek counseling; (2) the Career Workshop is the only counseling available to many adults; (3) there is a movement from job to job by those of high school and college experience, with both seemingly working in the same occupations; (4) the Career Workshop is of great value to adults of all educational levels. Three appendixes contain: A. Statement of the Problem; Questionnaire Schedule; B. Tables of participants' responses; C. Evaluation--Career Workshop 1971. The schedule for the eight meetings of the workshop concludes the report. (DB)
