Career Information, Group Counseling 1974-75. Final Report.
Gateway Technical Inst., Kenosha, WI.
The report describes a Gateway Technical Institute (Wisconsin) project to provide more effective counseling and career information to disadvantaged students in the institute's vocational, technical, and adult education district. Interviews with graduates of 46 different programs were taped as a technique for providing occupational information for potential and present students. The taped conversations included information about job satisfaction, relevance of training, advancement opportunities, and other job-related information. A peer counseling program was instituted to provide information and opportunity for more personal contact with new students. In addition, 50 career information packets consisting of from 20 to 50 color slides and accompanying scripts were developed to be used in counseling and recruitment. Since the inception of the program in 1975, enrollment has increased significantly on the Racine campus, as predicted at the outset of the study. (NJ)
