Final Report of Career Guidance Institute.
Schenck, Norma Elaine
The Career Guidance Institute was attended by eighteen South Bend, Indiana, educators. Among them were administrators, counselors, and teachers. Each individual visited nine of eighteen cooperating businesses and industries and wrote a report on one of them. Also included in the institute program were films, an orientation meeting, a two-day workshop, and discussion groups on the techniques and strategies for career planning. Pre- and post-tests were given to the institute participants to determine their familiarity with the required education, training, yearly income, and occupational mobility for 30 job titles. Participants were also asked to record their perception of their own knowledge of career guidance. Scores were uniformly higher on the post-test, the margin of difference between scores for the same item showing some variation. The participants generally agreed the institute accomplished its objectives and plans for implementation of career guidance programs were stated. (Each of the eighteen written reports included a description of the place of visitation, what it does, the number of employees, its job opportunities, fringe benefits, future occupational needs, and related information.)
