A "STARTER"/FILE OF FREE OCCUPATIONAL LITERATURE
This edition of A "STARTER" FILE OF FREE OCCUPATIONAL LITERATURE has been
completely revised in order to provide an optimum amount of information and.
assistance to young men and women about to assimilate and use career informa-
tion. Rapid developments in the labor market and the resulting outgrowth,of
'reef literature during the past several years eeflect the need for an -up -
dated listing of career information.
This is a "starter" file in two senses: (1) the file may be an initial step .
toward building a complete file of free occupational literature and (g) single
.15 leaflets for each of about, 1000 occupations may be .used -to initiate a more
thorough career investigation,
This revised bibliography of free career literature is designed for use by
high'school and col/lege-students and their advisors in career planning., The
authors hope this edition will also serve as a source of useful information
for parents, teacers and guidance counselors. As'in the last edition, A -
.wide variety of f ee occupational material is condepsed-. -We have attempted to
minimize the pressures of collecting, the awkwardness of using and the over-
whelming monitoring of oversized files of bccupationi31 literature.
This "starter" file contains literature which may be used as reliable resources
for a vast majority of career counseling needs %likely to be encountered. All
117 pamphlets listed may be kept in portable files or in less than half a
file drawer. :Til this m er, a small, Selective file can be readily available
without interfering with, r terminating a counseling session for a trip to the
As in the previous edition, selection criteria were carefully considered,
though admitedly biased. Our bias ,was directly related to the career t
interests and needs of our Client population-=those4ho hold mainly middle
clas valued and levels of aspiration. In addition1 they are generally te-
tween'the ages of 15 and 20, and4are oriented toward a non-rilral lifestyle.
One pamphlet was selected for each career field on h basis of the-followin
1. At least one copy available free upon request.
2. Recency of publication. (It is surprising haw'many pamphlets do nit
indicate publication date.)' All of those selected are less than five
years old. .
3. Published by a professional and/or other reputable source..
4, Author professionally qualified. (We regret that a large.number of
organizations do not give a by-line to the person who actually
researched and wrote theme pamphlet.)
5. Reading level appropriate for high school and college students.
If more than one publication fort a particular career field Vas available, we
ranked each on the basis of the following criteria:
1. Accuracy, balance and objectivity. (Avoidance of a recruitment tone
in free occupational literature is not always to be found.) ----\
2. Content and adaptability. (Publibations-with breadth of information
and applicable toftseveral careers; were favored.) ,
Style. (The pamphlet must be,stiMulating.)
ForMat. (Attractiveness was considered to add value. Color plates
and a/high level of graphic design make the literature listed more
actualizing for the reader. Graphics that illustrate implications
of the material for all groups within our society are highly valuable.)}
/ Some career fields relevant to our client population are not covered by our
selec lons,---Their exclusion from this f
