Rosove, Bruce; Hawkins, Keira
This PLACE Sourcebook on the World of Work provides clients in employment counseling with information about occupations, the norms of the labor market, and sources that clients can consult to find additional information on the parts of PLACE related to identifying an occupation and fitting the requirements. For each employment-related topic in the corresponding Workbook (CE 031 883) there is a section in the Sourcebook that clients can read to analyze the nature of employment requirements for that topic. The Sourcebook can also be used by clients to find out what is meant by questions in the workbook to determine how they should be answered. It sets forth those skills or resources that must be obtained to overcome each employment problem. Topics covered include Canadian Classification and Dictionary of Occupations, physical requirements, work performance requirements, credentials, and equipment and work clothes ownership. An appendix provides instructions on using employers, unions and professional associations, and workers as sources of information about occupational entry requirements. (YLB)
