Young Workers: A Forgotten Group.
Wichita State Univ., KS.
This 6-day workshop on young persons entering the labor market directly after high school was designed to aid counselors in testing their assumptions and knowledge about the entry-level labor market against the experience of recent Kansas high school graduates. The workshop was divided into three stages: model building, data collection, and synthesis. Data were collected in interviews with entry-level workers. The workshop demonstrated that: (1) This type of format could be valuable for inservice training of other groups, (2) The "man on the street" interviews which were conducted were a new and valuable experience for the participants, (3) Counselor role and function overemphasized academic orientation, and (4) Entry-level workers generally had inadequate career information.
