Career Communication and the Community College.
Muchmore, John
Those who wish to expand communication programs in community colleges often have opportunities to develop special courses related to career programs. The speech communication educator offers information on a critical process of human behavior that should be shared with as many as possible, particularly those who are preparing for service occupations where interpersonal relationships are important. Speech communication programs can ge presented in precise instructional modules which are of particular value to the career education specialists. A program can best be developed by outlining descriptions of communication demands in specific occupations. The communication educator could then identify communication behaviors for each occupational role, indicate conditions under which they would be enacted, specify the relative importance of communication behaviors, and provide instructional modules suitable for each individual and his career goals. This role-context approach offers many possibilities for integrating a speech communication program into career education. (RN)
