Summary

This paper is concerned with the uses and misuses of occupational information. Several points are made concerning misuse: 1) The Occupational Outlook Handbook needs to be read and interpreted rather than just handed out; 2) too much material is outdated; 3) many materials are biased and need to be replaced; 4) counselors should read all material before passing it out; 5) career conference days need revision so students can attend more meetings; 6) use alumni and students for current job information; 7) the two-week unit on occupations taught by a disinterested person is a great source of misinformation; and 8) a course in occupations taught by a counselor can be made very worthwhile. Some activities which can achieve positive results are to: 1) make an annual follow-up study of dropouts and graduates to evaluate previous guidance, and 2) arrange plant tours where alumni work. An outline of a minimum program of occupational information for a high school or college is included. (KJ)
