Journal of Career Development
In 1979, at the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU), the Career Center (CPPC) and the Financial Aid Office collaborated to create the "job locator program" as identified in the Higher Education Act of 1965 and Amendments in 1976, 1980 and 1992. The Job Development Programs provide students with extra income as well as relevant work experience while employers gain student employees who have experienced practical application of the theories learned in classrooms. Therefore, the Job Development Programs provide an ideal opportunity to bridge the gap between the world of academia and the world of work.
