An Introduction to Career Path Employability Profiles.
Alvir, Howard P.
An employability profile specifies employment opportunities for which an individual is qualified. A career path is the term applied to an employability profile that combines both the career ladder aspect of advancement and the career lattice element of wide selection. After a descriptive analysis of typical employability profiles, this document presents practical examples of developing student success in learning to earn and to work. Four different types of employability profiles are analyzed and applied to career education curricula: (1) screening, (2) checklisting, (3) individualizing, and (4) multi-occ-ing. A systems approach (objectives, evaluations, resources) is presented to simplify the development of career path employability profiles in the typical school setting. As a guide for beginners, six career path employability profiles are presented in the form of countable products resulting from career programs centered around occupational choice and employment level: diagnostic performance keys, skills tests, attitude profiles, self-paced modules, materials interchange, and packages.
