Career Bibliography. A Guide to Free and Inexpensive Occupational Information.
Slick, James M., Comp.
Designed for use by cooperative education instructors, counselors, librarians, students, and teachers, this career bibliography identifies more than 2,000 sources of occupational information (e.g., government agencies, professional associations, private businesses) which offer over 5,000 free or inexpensive job-related publications. Five hundred and twenty-two occupations are listed alphabetically, and sources of information (with mailing addresses and publication titles) are alphabetized under each occupational title. Each listing is also numbered with a "Dictionary of Occupational Titles" (DOT) code. The code numbers are indexed in the back of the book and are clustered according to jobs having the same basic occupational or worker characteristics and similar educational requirements. Thus occupations related to an occupation of primary interest can be identified. In addition, a study guide and checklist is appended to aid in conducting a personal exploration of specific occupations and alternatives. Purposes of the guide and directions for its use are presented on the opening pages. (BL)
