Community College Career Alternatives Handbook.
Snider, Patricia A.; Valente, Patricia L.
This handbook was designed as a resource on career alternatives for counselors and students and to identify the Illinois colleges and universities to which the community college student may transfer to complete his/her education. The handbook is classified by college majors offered at Morton College (MC), and is based on information obtained from company, business, government, and service recruiting materials; a guide to occupational temperment characteristics; program catalogs; and MC alumni. After introductory material outlining the handbook's purposes and organization, MC's 17 university transfer programs are listed and pertinent information is provided on careers in the field, the general temperment characteristics of those working in the field; the alternative career options within the major; transfer information and requirements; and career clusters for the transfer degree programs. Next, relevant career information, career options, transfer information, and career ladders based on job qualifications are provided for MC's 18 occupational programs, which lead to immediate employment. Appendices provide advice on how to choose a college and the best job; list MC transfer and career programs and other Illinois community colleges with similar degree programs; and offer a selected bibliography.
