This report contains guidelines to vocational/occupational instructors who are developing or evaluating curricula to train workers for entry into a particular job and guidelines for students to determine the competencies they must have to enter a particular job or group of jobs. It includes descriptions (job sheets) of forty-one jobs, with job functions and activities listed in the order of perceived priority. Job titles are grouped into eight major occupational categories: (1) labor, production agriculture; (2) equipment operation and repair; (3) landscape and nursery; (4) sales; (5) technical and quality control; (6) business and office; (7) managerial/supervisorial; and (8) professional. Each title is prefaced with a short introduction, has a brief description of the fringe benefits received by employees, and is keyed to the "Dictionary of Occupational Titles" coding system. Appendix A contains additional agricultural job titles not included in this study, and Appendix B contains brief descriptions of functions and activities of various agricultural occupations (e.g., sales, purchasing, public relations, education-extension work, and clerical-office).
