Career Planning for Chicano/Latino Students.
Douglas, Denise; And Others
This career planning curriculum is designed for use with Chicano or Latino community college students. Addressed in the curriculum are the following topics: cultural and self-awareness; career awareness (self-assessment, assessment of jobs and organizations, economic awareness, and Hispanics in the work force); decision making and planning (making decisions and developing an action plan); and job search skills and job success (resumes, letters, and applications; finding the right employer; job interviews; issues relevant to the Chicano/Latino employee, and what employers expect). Each section contains instructor materials (objectives and a rationale) and student materials (handouts, exercises, and discussion questions). All student materials (with the exception of a few in the fourth section) have been translated into Spanish so that the course may be taught either in Spanish or in English. (MN)
