You and the Rural Connection: Answers to Your Questions on Rural Career Guidance.
Drier, Harry; And Others
Samples of the approximately 1,900 requests for information received by the Rural Connection (RC) between September, 1977, and November, 1978, have been selected to give the reader a general idea of the kind of career information requested by guidance counselors in small, rural schools. The requests are organized into two main categories, each with subsections: Career Information (Animal Science; Crafts, Services, and Trades; Mechanics; Forestry and Recreation; Fine Arts and Commercial Arts; Computers, Communications, and Electronics; Engineering and Technology; Helping and Service--Vocational and Paraprofessional; Scholarship and Other Forms of Financial Aid; and Miscellany) and Information of Professional Interest to Guidance Counselors (Career Education and Guidance; Specific Topics within the Career Education and Guidance Field; and RC and the "Rural American Series"). The source of each sample request is noted, along with the information given in response and any additional action which may have been taken to help the caller. Statistics on the occupational categories of the callers, the kind of request, and how the caller learned of RC are also provided. (SB)
