Job Placement Services: A Guidebook for Counselors.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Vocational Education.
The ultimate objective of vocational guidance for public school youth should be appropriate job placement. Traditionally, public school guidance services have not included job placement. The purpose of this guide is to assist educators in accepting placement services as a technique for enhancing the vocational development of all high school youth. A proposed model for placement services in a high school guidance department is designed to serve three functions: (1) to provide exploratory part-time job experiences, (2) to provide needed assistance to dropouts, and (3) to aid graduates in finding meaningful employment. Guidelines present the basic steps for establishing a program of placement services, allowing for adaptability at the local level. Brief descriptions are included for five pilot projects which conducted exploratory programs in job placement. (CH)
