A STUDY OF CERTAIN FACTORS INVOLVED IN JOB PLACEMENT ACTIVITY OF HIGH SCHOOL AGE YOUTH.
CAMPBELL, NORRIS C.
KNOWLEDGE ABOUT JOB PLACEMENT ACTIVITY AMONG SCHOOL-AGE YOUTH WAS EXPLORED IN A SURVEY OF (1) SCHOOL COUNSELOR INVOLVEMENT IN JOB PLACEMENT, (2) ROLE OF OTHER AGENCIES, AND (3) SELF-EFFORT OF STUDENTS. TWO GROUPS WERE STUDIED--(1) 947 EAST TEXAS STATE UNIVERSITY FRESHMEN AND (2) 745 ABILENE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE FRESHMEN. SEX DISTRIBUTION WAS ABOUT EQUAL. NO LOCAL INFLUENCES WERE OBSERVED IN THESE GEOGRAPHICALLY SEPARATED GROUPS. THE QUESTIONNAIRE REGARDED PART-TIME VERSUS FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT, OCCUPATION IN WHICH EMPLOYED, AMOUNT OF EMPLOYMENT, AND THOSE WHO HELPED IN OBTAINING THE EMPLOYMENT DURING THE LAST SCHOOL YEAR AND FIRST SUMMER OUT OF SCHOOL. THE SURVEY SHOWED THAT (1) SCHOOL PERSONNEL DID LITTLE TO HELP YOUNG PEOPLE FIND JOBS, (2) STATE EMPLOYMENT AGENCIES DID LITTLE MORE, AND (3) YOUNG PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO WORK MORE. LESS THAN 5 PERCENT OBTAINED HELP FROM THE SCHOOLS AND STATE AGENCIES COMBINED. IMPLICATIONS STATED WERE (1) THERE IS A NEED FOR AN AGENCY TO MEET THE JOB NEEDS AND INTERESTS OF YOUNG PEOPLE, AND (2) ALTHOUGH LIMITED TO SOUTHWESTERN COLLEGE-BOUND STUDENTS, DIVERSITY OF THE AREA MAKES THE IMPLICATIONS GENERALLY VALUABLE. THIS SPEECH WAS PREPARED FOR THE AMERICAN PERSONNEL AND GUIDANCE ASSOCIATION CONVENTION (WASHINGTON, D.C., SESSION 105, APRIL 5, 1966). (RM)
