The Personal Service Cluster. Career Orientation Series.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Vocational Education.
Developed to provide seventh and eighth grade students information about careers in the personal service occupational cluster, this booklet may be used to integrate career information with various subject areas. (It is one of several student booklets developed for use in the Ohio Career Orientation Program at grades 7 and 8 to assist students in making tentative career decisions for exploration activities in grades 9 and 10.) Several jobs are listed with brief one- or two-sentence descriptions in each of five career areas in the cluster: (1) physical culture, (2) barbering services, (3) cosmetology services, (4) mortuary science, and (5) household pet services. A closer look at five specific careers is provided through brief case studies of one individual working in each job: veterinarian's assistant/animal technician, apprentice director, electrologist/cosmetric therapist, barber, and pet shop owner/manager. Focus is on abilities, interests, and preparation, and activities for each job. Brief exploration activities are suggested through which students can learn more about the jobs. A chart is provided with notes on how various school subjects (home economics, English, social science, industrial arts, physical education, music, science, art, and mathematics) are related to the personal service cluster careers. A list of qualities needed for personal service careers and a list of sources for additional career information (professional associations and specific government bulletins) are included along with a vocabulary list. The text is illustrated with photographs. (JT)
