Job Placement Center. Final Report.
Objectives of the second-year project described in this report were (1) to conduct a series of one-day workshops on job searching skills for at least 400 high school students and recent graduates; (2) to test interested students and match individual abilities and interests with available employment; (3) to contact at least 600 potential employers; (4) to involve the Bureau of Employment Security; (5) to fill at least 50% of the openings listed with the Center with participating students and graduates; and (6) to determine the feasibility of establishing satellite centers. Procedures for attaining these objectives are described, as well as results obtained, including results of a pilot study on satellite placement centers. Four major evaluations are presented: the job information workshops, the satellite pilot study, the Job Placement Center project overall, and a one-year followup re-evaluation of the project. Conclusions and recommendations are presented and include implementing the Job Placement Center program within the high schools of one or two interested school districts. The major portion of the report consists of appendixes--primarily the evaluation forms and responses for both the Job Placement Center and the pilot study.
