Career Resource Centers. Searchlight Plus: Relevant Resources in High Interest Areas. 31+.
Weiss, Susan Cortright
Career Resource Centers (CRCs) are a logical outgrowth of vocational development theory which views career development as a continuous process with a lifelong series of career decisions made at various transition points over time. After starting in high schools, CRCs have spread to all arenas of formal education as well as to community agencies, and business and industry. In this manual, information is provided on establishing a CRC, with specific reference to an advisory committee, planning, design, staffing, type, selection and organization of resources, tests and inventories, computer-assisted programs, publicity, services and activities, and evaluation. Model CRC programs are presented to demonstrate the applicability of CRCs to a wide variety of educational levels (elementary to post secondary), special populations (rural adults, disadvantaged/handicapped, working women, and out-of-school youths), community agencies, and business/industry settings. The annotated bibliography is based on a computer search of the ERIC database (November 1966 through February 1983) of educational journal and resource literature on Career Resource Centers. (BL)
