Exploring Careers: The ASVAB Workbook.
Military Entrance Processing Command (DOD), North Chicago, IL.
This workbook is designed to assist young people in using their Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) scores for career exploration purposes. Designed to be interactive, the workbook motivates the students to become involved in interpreting their ASVAB scores and completing exercises and charts that help them determine their values, skills, and educational goals while they think about the features they want most in an occupation and career. The workbook uses a comic strip format with exercises which feature four students who are beginning to think about what they will do after graduation. These students consider careers, explore occupations, and begin making decisions and plans. In the section on values, students are asked to pick their most important values. In the section on interests and skills, students are asked to evaluate which activities they like the most and activities for which they have aptitude. Next, students may choose one activity which they feel they must avoid and must decide how much education or training they are ready or willing to undertake. An appended oversize "Occu-Find chart" in which the previous information and ASVAB scores can be plotted to help determine what occupations are matched to the student, is too large to be reproduced here. Information on learning more about occupations is provided. (ABL)
