Exploring New Worlds: Trades and Technical Occupations for Women.
Nash, Margaret A.
This workbook is designed to help girls and women explore the possibility of a career in nontraditional occupations, such as trade and technical occupations. It is organized in eight sections that cover the following topics: planning a career, knowing what you like, nontraditional choices, working in the skilled trades, working in the high-tech fields, hearing from women who have been there, pursuing new possibilities, and choosing your own path. Sections include self-quizzes with answers; activity pages to list skills, experiences, and values; and checklists. The book also lists support networks for women in science, medicine, and engineering; mathematics; sales; communications; business and professional areas; trades; computers; and general areas. Nine books and magazines and four videotapes are suggested. (KC)
