Careers: A Directory of Vocational and Technical Training Resources in Oregon.
Ward, Dale E., Ed.
Careers is a publication which presents a systematic approach to the selection of a career and occupation, stressing the belief that launching a career begins with self-appraisal, continues with career selection and job training and concludes with job entry. It is a step-by-step outline of the way to find the right job and where to obtain the training needed. Step 1--Getting to Know Yourself--is a personal inventory in terms of work, education, and hobbies. Each of these areas is analyzed in terms of identifying job related abilities. Step 2--Picking the Right Career--lists job descriptions with reference to the present Oregon labor market, aptitudes, attitudes, and abilities needed, the Oregon employment outlook, training needed, and locations for the necessary training. In step 3--Choosing the Right Training School--general information, admission policy and procedures, programs, student services, and location are discussed for 16 training programs. A directory of vocational training programs in Oregon is included. Finally the fourth step is discussed--Getting the Job You Want. Information includes what a resume should contain and how to prepare for a good interview. The nine appendixes provide additional information related to the process of career selection. (BP)
