Roveland, Richard M.
This guide provides a handy reference to major sources of information dealing with career planning, educational opportunities, occupational supply and demand, job characteristics, and the job search. Prepared for the New York State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, this directory contains, whenever possible, sources relating to New York rather than more generalized information. These 240 publications that are available to the public from federal and New York agencies, publishers, associations, and private organizations are described and listed in alphabetical order. Following the title of each item is the source or abbreviated identifier for a government source (a key is provided). Each item is also designated as being most useful to one or more of three segments of the career information audience: direct participants in the labor market (job or career seekers), labor market intermediaries (counselors, job placement personnel, teachers), or planners and administrators. A subject guide by topics precedes the list of publications and groups them into these eight areas: occupational demand, occupational supply, occupational characteristics, education and training, labor force demographics and economic trends, job search, career and vocational planning, and other information (special groups and miscellaneous).
