Career Guidance Training.
Young, John E.
The 1972 Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) Career Training Program was aimed at placing counselors in actual work situations (as new employees) to enable them to experience that which they must describe to students if they are to do an effective job in career counseling. The overall purpose was to give counselors or teachers and administrators an opportunity to learn about, participate in, and analyze a broad range of professional, technical, skilled, and semiskilled occupations. This program will serve as a model by providing a documented experience to aid schools, business, industry, and professional organizations throughout the country in setting up similar career guidance training programs. The participants worked for six weeks side by side with JPL employees, moving from one work station to another. The participants, working in groups, produced documents summarizing their studies suitable for use in counseling students. The counselors who participated in the program left the lab much more knowledgeable concerning actual job duties and responsibilities, and with a better understanding of entry level skills, job descriptions, and the need for the educator to help create an efficient work force.
