Heart of the Earth Survival School, Minneapolis, MN.
Developed by the staff of Project SEARCH, this booklet is designed to assist American Indian adults of the Minneapolis-St. Paul area in an exploration of careers. As noted by the introduction, it may also be of interest to Indian high school students, college students, and others who are looking for ideas about the kinds of careers available. The booklet contains interviews, conducted between November 1984 and February 1985, of Indian adults actively engaged in various careers. Interviewed are an administrative assistant, postal distribution clerk, office manager, counselor, store manager and co-owner, registered nurse, school administrator and program director, cook and chef, heavy equipment mechanic, buyer, computer system analyst, radio broadcaster, TV producer and co-host/health promotion coordinator, bus driver, company president, and chemical dependency counselor. A summary of each career or closely related careers precedes each interview. Discussed in the interview are what each individual likes most and least about their job, what their responsiblities are, the type of education or training needed in acquiring their position, salaries and advancement possibilities, how they got started in their career, and what advice they have for individuals who would like to pursue their career.
