1975 Career Student Follow-up: Initial Placement.
During the fall of 1975, career program coordinators at Johnson County Community College (JCCC) contacted students who graduated from their programs that year and non-graduates who left with marketable skills. The study population consisted of 177 graduates, 41 non-graduates with marketable skills, and 7 hearing impaired students. Contact was made by telephone, either directly or through a work associate or close relative. Hearing impaired students were contacted in person. Information concerning JCCC training and present employment and/or education was obtained on 196 former students. Results indicated that 84% were employed in a job for which they had trained or in a related job, 10% were employed in an unrelated area, 4% were attending school, and 2% were unemployed. Sixty-seven percent felt their training had helped them obtain their job. Overall, 48% rated their program excellent, 45% good, 6% adequate, and 1% poor. The report details the study findings for each of the ten career programs involved, and provides comparisons with previous career follow-up studies. The interview instrument utilized in the study is appended. (JDS)
