Summary

Under the United States employment service's job opportunities information program, state employment service agencies have surveyed and reported on job opportunities and other manpower information for their areas. This directory lists two principal types of studies developed as a part of this program--occupational guides and area skill surveys. Both provide information for designing training programs, for counseling in local employment service offices and schools, and for offering individual jobseekers and vocational counselors concrete information on job opportunities in specific occupations or groups of occupations. Occupational guides provide a concise summary of job duties, characteristics, and employment prospects for single and grouped occupations in a particular area or state. Area skill surveys relate community manpower resources to future occupational requirements--generally 2 to 5 years ahead. About 140 of these surveys are available and 44 are being developed. The directory lists occupational guides by occupational group, state, and over 750 individual job titles. Occupational guidance materials are listed for selected industries, occupational fields, and special worker groups. Area skill surveys are listed by state and locality. Dates of publications range from 1954 to 1965 with most having been published since 1960. (et)
