In 1970, the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) began a program on its Ankeny campus known as Career Exploration. The idea was to allow people to explore a career by performing representative work samples. For example, a person exploring Medical Laboratory work would have the opportunity to do blood typing, prepare slides, do urinalysis, and prepare smear cultures. These experiences coupled with information about training requirements, job prospects, and salaries, provided a background on which a career decision could be based.
