Essay on Career Information

Career Information – Resources Report

You are required to prepare a three content pages report that analyzes three (3) sources of occupational information. Search for sources of Occupational Information, not sources of job leads. One source should be text-based; another should be an online source; and the third can be of your choosing.

Information and Resources may be taken from:
•Education, training, and employment trends; labor market information and resources that provide information about job tasks, functions and salaries, requirements and future outlooks related to broad occupational fields and individual occupations.

•Resources and skills that clients utilize in life-work planning and management.

•Community / professional resources available to assist clients in career planning, including job search.

•Changing roles of women and men and the implications that this has for education, family, and leisure.

•Methods of good use of computer-based career information delivery systems (CIDS) and computer-assisted career guidance systems (CACGS) to assist with career planning.

Your report should succinctly summarize the strengths and weaknesses of each source. Compare and contrast the three sources. In addition, provide recommendations (pros or cons) about the value of the sources to other potential users.

Below are examples of some computer based information delivery systems.
