Exploring Careers. Industrial Production Occupations.
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 second of the fifteen booklets, "Industrial Production Occupations," presents an overview of occupations which involve factory production. Narrative accounts focus on a bench assembler, a machinist, and a photocompositor, explaining their training needs and what they do on the job. An exploring section relates the skills needed for these occupations to students' personal characteristics, and suggests activities such as factory trips and reports. A Job Facts section explains nature and places of work, training and qualifications, and other information for thirty-three industrial and production occupations, grouped in occupational clusters of foundry, machining, printing, and other industrial production and related occupations. ("Exploring Careers" is also available as a single volume of fifteen chapters.) (KC)
