OPPORTUNITIES AND REQUIREMENTS FOR INITIAL EMPLOYMENT OF SCHOOL LEAVERS WITH EMPHASIS ON OFFICE AND RETAIL JOBS.
COOK, FRED S.; LANHAM, FRANK W.
THE NUMBER AND TYPES OF ENTRY JOBS AVAILABLE TO HIGH SCHOOL LEAVERS AND THE SKILLS DEMANDED BY THE EMPLOYER AS A PREREQUISITE FOR HIRING WERE STUDIED. DATA WERE COLLECTED FROM EMPLOYERS AND SCHOOL LEAVERS. ALL DATA WERE COLLECTED THROUGH THE USE OF PROFESSIONAL INTERVIEWERS. THESE DATA WILL PROVIDE SCHOOL PERSONNEL WITH THE BASIS FOR MAKING CURRICULUM CHANGES IN BUSINESS AND DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION SUBJECTS. THERE IS A DIRECT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SIZE OF THE COMPANY AND THE NUMBER OF ENTRY JOBS AVAILABLE FOR 16- TO 21-YEAR-OLDS WITH HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION OR LESS. THE LARGER THE COMPANY, THE MORE LIKELY THEY ARE TO HAVE ENTRY-TYPE JOBS AVAILABLE. INNOVATIVE PROGRAMS ARE NEEDED TO NARROW THE BRIDGE BETWEEN WHAT EMPLOYERS WANT FROM 16- TO 21-YEAR-OLDS ENTERING THE LABOR MARKET AND WHAT THEY GET FROM SCHOOLS' VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS. (JL)
