ACT II: Adults in Career Transition.
Ake, Ida C.; And Others
This handbook provides a framework for adult educators and counselors interested in planning a career guidance program for adults. The Career Guidance and Skills Program in Tallahassee, Florida, upon which the information in the handbook is based, is first described. Practical information is provided on administrative concerns such as assessing the needs of the community, evaluating the local job market, establishing service sites, utilizing sponsoring agency resources, hiring and training personnel, getting publicity, and developing a realistic timetable. Other contents include a career decision-making model and a step-by-step outline to help program staff develop their own career decision-making model. For each step, either the actual materials used or resources for developing materials are provided. Guidelines are then supplied for using the career decision-making model as a basis for workshops. Materials provided from two workshops on choosing, changing, and applying for a job include decision-making steps covered in the model, objectives, publicity efforts, summary of format, seating and equipment requirements, detailed formats, and a list of materials and resources needed. A section on program evaluation contains forms for collecting program data and feedback. Sample scripts of career tapes (one of the services provided by the Career Guidance and Skills Program) are included in the final section. (YLB)
