Exploring Careers: The ASVAB Workbook.
Military Entrance Processing Command (DOD), North Chicago, IL.
Each year, about 900,000 students in 14,000 schools take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB). This workbook is designed to assist these students in using their ASVAB scores for career exploration purposes. It is intended to be interactive and to motivate students to become involved in interpreting their ASVAB scores. There are opportunities throughout the book to complete exercises that help determine individual interests, values, skills, and educational goals, while giving students a chance to think about the features they want most in an occupation and career. Students are guided towards occupations that match their interests, abilities, and personal preferences. In this way they can develop career plans to investigate the occupations they determined of interest. The ASVAB workbook introduces a group of students who are also in the midst of career exploration. Their experiences and discussions can be used to guide users of the workbook in their discoveries. The text is interspersed with cartoon scenarios, charts, and diagrams to further explain concepts and to assist in keeping students engaged. (Author/JDM)
