Helping the Nontraditional Student: Counseling, Job Development, and Job Placement.
Winstead, Annie S.
This guide, developed for counselors and job placement coordinators working with nontraditional students who choose to pursue a course of study not traditionally associated with their sex, presents a schematic discussion of components necessary for nontraditional student job placement services. Guidance and counseling areas raised by students considering nontraditional careers are discussed along with issues to be considered before, during, and after a student enrolls in a program of study. The goals of job development are outlined and ideas for valuable public relations information and supportive materials are provided. A section on job placement centers on the problems of job applications and interviews for nontraditional students. Information on job matching, interview arrangements, and follow-up evaluations is included. The appendix contains various sample forms for resumes, employer and student profiles, and job information.
