CAP Program Guide.

This program guide is one of the 14 components (see note) of the Career Alert Planning (CAP) program, a set of individualized materials designed to help participants find out about themselves and about the kind of work for which they are suited. In this program, participants become acquainted with occupations that are representative of 10 basic job functions. They learn how these occupations relate to personal interest, abilities, skills, educational goals, experiences, and training. They consider the work conditions, salary, and employment outlook for each occupation. Finally, participants use this information to make decisions and plans about the careers they will pursue. This program guide, designed for use by the participants, contains four sections. The Introduction explains the CAP program and the program materials. It gives the participant explicit instructions on how to begin and proceed through the first phase of the program. Following the Introduction, the Procedure section of the guide gives the participant instructions on how to progress through the program. It tells the participant what to do after he or she has completed work in each occupation. The third section, the Plan, contains information and direction in career decision making and planning. Finally, the fourth section of the guide consists of Reaction Forms which participants use to record their reactions to the tasks or activities they do. They note the things they like and dislike, the things they can and cannot do, and other pertinent information they need for career planning. These Reaction Forms relate to the 10 basic job functions (and 40 occupational titles) explored in the Job Function Booklets (see note). (KC)
