A Competency-Based Course in Job-Seeking and Job-Survival Skills.
Heffner, Fred; And Others
This course of instruction contains materials designed to provide the trainee in an adult manpower training program with job-seeking and job-survival skills. Contents include a listing of course objectives and competencies by instructional units, a pre- and post-course test, and lesson plans for the two-section course. The ten units of the job-seeking-skills section, which require approximately eighty study hours, cover these topics: assertiveness, attitudes, goal setting, job preference and suitability, employment resources, pre-application skills, job application, job search, job interview, and post-interview critique. The six units of the job-survival-skills section, which require approximately thirty hours, concentrate on those skills necessary to keep a job: attitudes, goal setting, communications, general skills, job-survival tools, and job etiquette. The lesson plan for each unit presents the unit and performance objective, skills emphasized, materials and equipment, and list of activities. The learning activities are then provided. A course evaluation form for students also appears. Appendixes include a mastery log (competencies), employability profile form, student data sheet, and various other materials used during the course. (YLB)
