Abstract:

"Vocational guidance is bound up first of all with educational problems, and second with economic and social questions. On this account the reader must not expect a book on the subject to offer anything like a complete program or solution of the problem. The breadth of the field considered in this book, however, should prove a distinct advantage to those readers who are willing to set aside the desire for short cuts and to work out thoughtful proposals for bettering hopeful but inadequate pioneering on the one hand and complete neglect on the other. As a civic force, vocational guidance is concerned with increasing the knowledge of occupational problems, as a necessary basis for their cooperative solution. As a moral force, the counselor must inculcate not only the personal virtues needed in the successful pursuit of one's calling, but also the social helpfulness based on the understanding that the cooperative opportunities are greater than the competitive, and on the theory of society, "We are members one of another." As an agent of culture, vocational guidance seeks for harmonious and refined living in street, store, factory, shop, farm, and mine, as well as in the literary society and at the fireside. This book is offered as a contribution to the preparation for the task ahead of us: it is the hope of the writer that it may become a part of the literature of the reconstruction"--Preface.
