Locating Job Information. ERIC Digest No. 85.
Wagner, Judith O.
How to locate information that can be used in career decision making is the subject of this digest. The first section lists the career/occupational information collections generally found in public libraries, including printed resources, information about associations, information about local sources of job information, information on specific careers, information about potential employers, information on special populations, information on job search methods, and sample military and civil service tests. The next section points out that most state departments of education have career information systems that are available to just about anyone and also describes such a system (the Ohio Career Information System). Tips on accessing a state occupational information system are given. The section on school career centers includes information on the holdings of secondary and postsecondary career education or guidance offices. An eight-item annotated bibliography concludes the document. (CML)
