A "Starter" File of Free Occupational Literature. 1975 Edition.
Goodman, Leonard H.; Garrett, Anne E.
This edition of the "starter" file of free occupational literature was revised in order to provide optimum amounts of information and assistance to young men and women about to assimilate and use career information. This is a "starter" file in two senses: (1) the file may be an initial step toward building a complete file of free occupational literature; and (2) single leaflets for each of about 1,000 occupations may be used to initiate a more thorough career investigation. The bibliography is designed for use by high school and college students and their advisors in career planning. Pamphlets were selected for each career field on the basis of the following: (1) at least one free copy is available; (2) recency of publication; (3) published by a reputable source; (4) author professionally qualified; and (5) reading level appropriate for high school and college students. Each listing includes name and date of publication, and name and address of the organization from which free materials may be requested. All 117 pamphlets listed may be stored in portable files or in less than half a file drawer, readily available for use during counseling sessions. (Author/PC)
