Career Choice and Career Preparation.
Washington State Coordinating Council for Occupational Education, Olympia.
This innovative study guide provides individualized occupational guidance for students in the secondary grades by means of autoinstructional reading materials covering career choice and career preparation. The student is asked to answer certain questions which narrow down his interests and qualifications, and on the basis of the answers he is instructed to turn to specific pages in the document. Jobs available to the high school graduate and dropout are described, including salaries, employment requirements, job locations, employment outlook, and sources of further information. Photographs illustrate the text, developed by a university educator and a training commander in the Air Force. Apprenticeship programs and federal employment programs are briefly discussed. Descriptions of community colleges and post-secondary vocational schools in Washington State include a chart alphabetically keying the institutes to specific vocational preparation programs which are offered. A map of school locations in Washington State is included. (AG)
