Placement and Counseling in a Changing Labor Market: Public and Private Employment Agencies and Schools. Final Report.
Thal-Larsen, Margaret; And Others
The objectives of the study were: (1) to determine the impact of manpower legislation, policies, and practices on the relative roles and effectiveness of public and private employment agencies and on the conduct of school occupational guidance activities in the period 1960-1968, and (2) to determine the relationships that exist between employment agencies and educational institutions, particularly in the development, transmission, and use of information on occupational changes in the planning of vocational education and training programs. Data were collected by questionnaire from the public employment service, private placement services, and counselors in secondary schools and junior colleges in the San Francisco Bay area. Because of the narrow geographic area and indepth interviewing, this study documents various aspects of recent manpower developments. Neither the employment service nor the schools of the area possess adequate labor market information, which participants agree is an essential resource for effective performance of assigned duties. It was recommended that a system to provide such information be created in the Bay area. (Author/GEB)
