Unpaid to Salaried Employment: Strategies for Change.
Neely, Margery A.; Dees, Diane
This workshop presentation from the National Vocational Guidance Association Annual Convention consists of two parts--a discussion of strategies for women to use in entering the paid labor force and a process to identify marketable competencies one has acquired. First, strategies are addressed for handling these three components of the change from unpaid to salaried employment: affective issues that create stress, job finding, and identifying and marketing skills. Second, a process related to functional resumes is explained that helps identify marketable skills one possesses. Stages are described in compiling an administrative competency portfolio, the basis of which is the Manual and Guide: Analogous Competency Assessment and which reflects administrative experience and serves as a functional resume. These stages are (1) identification of life experiences and their resulting knowledge and skills, (2) articulation of competencies, (3) selection of documentation, and (4) organization of materials to compose a narrative and assemble the complete portfolio. These handout materials are appended: reference list, outline of information regarding handling job stress, suggestions for fielding illegal questions, sample significant life-experience time-log sheet, and sample competency profile sheet.
