The Role the Career Information System Plays in Assessment and Employability Development Plans.
Fauria, Charlene K.
Because there is no "right" way to do assessment, vocational evaluation, or employability development planning, a variety of strategies and tools are used by agencies that best match agency resources and client needs. One common tool used by Lane County CETA, Jackson-Josephine Job Council, and Mid-Willamette Valley Consortium (all in Oregon) is the Career Information System (CIS). The agencies have found the Career Information System to be an invaluable resource for providing accurate occupational and educational information to career decision makers. CIS is used in seven main ways: (1) to provide career exploration by providing facts about jobs; (2) to increase knowledge about jobs and training so informed choices can be made; (3) to motivate the unemployed so they will become more interested in exploring training and placement opportunities; (4) to help discover courses of action and the way various alternatives might affect their future; (5) to assist in applying for and entering into training and employment--writing resumes, conducting interviews, etc.; (6) to assist in writing employability development plans; and (7) to assist in program planning.
