Furthering the Recognition of Women's Career-Relevant Skills. (Project HAVE Skills.) Interim Report.
Ekstrom, Ruth B.; And Others
Objectives of Project HAVE (Homemaking and Volunteer Experience) Skills are to develop, validate, and field test educational planning and experiential evaluation materials which can be used by women, counselors, and employers in assessing the skills which women have acquired from their volunteer work and homemaking experience. Progress to date has involved establishment of an advisory committee and validation panels, development of thirty-three "I Can" competency lists (e.g., child caretaker, benefit sales worker, consumer rights specialist, fund raiser), validation of the lists (524 items) by 122 women and 56 employers, factor analyses of the lists to revise and cluster skills, and drafting of the first three chapters of a workbook to help women identify their job-relevant skills and match them to those in paid jobs. Skill clusters will be related to jobs and job families on the basis of employer data, job literature analysis, and data to be collected from 100 employment and career counselors. The remaining two sections of the workbook have been outlined. Most of the report consists of appendixes: data summaries on the skill lists, correlation tables, final draft of competency lists, and draft of the first three workbook sections: introduction, overview and general discussion of questions asked by women returning to paid work, and exercises to review experience and identify skills.
