Reorganizing the Career Resource Center in a Community College.
Kelemen, Paul; Thorpe, Diane
In response to the failure of North Lake College's Career Resource Center to meet its intended objectives, this report reviews the strengths and weaknesses of the original center proposal, assesses the present organization of the center, and outlines steps for its reorganization. The paper begins by providing background on the college and the center, which was created to provide students and community members with resources and services for self-assessment, career decision-making, occupational information, educational planning, job-search skills, and career adjustment. The present state of the center is then described, revealing that it is unstaffed, the materials are dispersing, and few students are being served. Plans for the center's reorganization, which are based to a large extent on a review of the literature, are presented with respect to: (1) securing a larger, more appropriate location; (2) creating an attractive and comfortable environment; (3) staffing requirements; (4) selecting resources in the areas of occupational, educational, and social information; (5) the best filing system for the center's bound and unbound materials (the advantages and disadvantages of four filing systems are considered); (6) computer-assisted guidance; (7) multimedia technology; (8) budgeting; (9) program content and delivery systems; (10) publicizing the center; (11) ongoing evaluation; and (12) options for the future.
