Meeting the Career Development Needs of Tomorrow's Industrial/Technical Worker.
Kapes, Jerome T.
The workplace is changing, and both education for employment in the workplace and a subset of the educational system that is directed towards meeting the career development needs of students and adult workers will also change. The basic four-part model of career guidance will continue to be useful. The tools and techniques that are used in each part of the model--inventory (assessment), information, counseling, and placement and followup--are most likely to change. Trends in the workplace that will have an impact on the career development needs of industrial technical workers include the change to an information society, high technology, and demographic changes. The type of career guidance for both students and workers in industrial/technical settings involves a shift in emphasis in both the inventory and information components of the career guidance model to being computer based. As the number of computer-based guidance systems grows, the number of counselors may increase. More counseling will be handled through group processes and will occur after high school graduation. The computer will also be used extensively in job placement. Followup will aid in job adjustment and information collection. (YLB)
