Career Clusters: What They Are and How to Use Them: Counselor Guide.
The guide describes the Cluster Interest Inventory which is designed to familiarize students with the job contents of each of 13 career clusters developed by South Dakota's exemplary career education project. The bulk of the guide (16 pages) describes in detail the various career clusters with the following specificity: career cluster; job family; Dictionary of Occupational Titles code number; and the occupational title. Although the list does not cluster all occupations it does include many of the most common ones. Five pages of the guide are devoted to the Cluster Interest Inventory, a student self-interest scale. Part one is a clustered list of occupations so arranged that the student may check his career preference (like, uncertain, or dislike) and thus single out several clusters for further investigation. Part two permits students to rank their interest (high, medium, and low) in school subjects and sports and hobbies for comparison with their selections in part one. (JR)
