Exploring Careers. The World of Work and You.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (DOL), Washington, DC.
"Exploring Careers" is a career education resource program, presented in fifteen separate booklets, for junior high school-age students. It provides information about the world of work and offers its readers a way of learning about themselves and relating that information to career choices. The publications aim to build career awareness by means of occupational narratives, evaluative questions, activities, and career games presented in fourteen occupational clusters. This first of the series, "The World of Work and You," presents an overview of work life and career choice, including why people work, personal characteristics and jobs, school and work, training needed for various careers, and hints on how the student can continue to explore the world of work. It contains tables relating work values and personal characteristics to jobs, a table relating school subjects to "Exploring Careers" chapters, and a chart of various possibilities of education and training after high school. ("Exploring Careers" is also available as a single volume of fifteen chapters.) (KC)
