A Counselor's Guide to Occupational Information.
Michigan Occupational Information Coordinating Committee.
This guide for counselors contains a brief listing of primarily public domain and government-sponsored resources. It covers career, occupational, and labor market information. Only major sources are listed, and much of the information applies to the state of Michigan. Many of the publications included in the guide are available in libraries and career information centers. The listing consists of four major sections. The section on Career and Career Development Information lists publications that provide information about job categories, training programs, and the status of career development as well as resources designed to foster career exploration and decision making. Some of the information sources are related to professional development and are for career counselors and teachers. The section on Occupational/Labor Market Information lists many publications that provide career-related and job-related information but are more general purpose and narrower in scope than those in the first section. Many of these resources present statistics and are geared more to the professional rather than the student or client. The third section, Occupation and Other Classification Systems, presents the major occupational, educational, and industrial classifications systems. The final section, Information Programs, lists information programs that provide most of the resources covered by this references. They are also potential sources of additional assistance in finding or using information. A total of 59 entries are included in the guide. (NB)
