Willings, David
This manual outlines and explains procedures for conducting a study of the exact content and requirements of jobs in order to develop an information base for students to use in evaluating their suitability for given jobs.

Next, guidelines are set forth for compiling a job study. Concluding the guide are several sample charts and forms for use in conducting a job study as well as a sample job study. Included along with the manual is a nine-part survey instrument for use in helping students determine their career interests and objectives. (MN)
