Developed for use by counselors, career guidance specialists, vocational instructors, instructors in English as a second language, and other professionals involved in career development for Indochinese, the guide includes instructor guidelines, instructor support materials, and student materials in English as well as in the students' native languages. The suggested lessons and activities are intended to help Indochinese students make more effective career choices by allowing them to compare work settings in the United States and in their native countries; examine their interests, values, attitudes, and desired lifestyles; explore the variety of occupations available in the United States; strengthen their decision-making skills and make wise career choices based on personal assessment; improve job search skills; discover and apply ways to be successful on the job; and experience being in the U.S. labor market. Each unit is divided into several lessons which provide objectives, suggestions for instructor preparation, procedures and materials, guidelines for classroom and non-classroom activities, and supplementary materials.
