Project HAVE Skills: A Program for Matching Women and Jobs. Employer's Guide.
Ekstrom, Ruth B.
This employer's guide is part of the HAVE (Homemaking and Volunteer Experience) Skills materials designed to help women identify the job-relevant skills they have learned as homemakers and volunteers and to match those skills with paid jobs. The main purpose of this guide is to help employers who are interested in hiring women returning to paid work after spending time as homemakers or volunteers. Materials in this guide and the accompanying counselor's guide and Women's Workbook can also be used to help working women use their unpaid work skills for job changes or advancement. The introductory chapter presents a rationale for recognizing homemaking and volunteer skills and discusses the identification and assessment of these skills. Chapter Two describes the development of the HAVE Skills Assessment Survey. Chapter Three explains the development and use of the HAVE Skills Chart which links occupational groups with 28 "I Can" lists or competency statements for skills used by homemakers and volunteers. Chapter Four discusses the development of screening instruments using the "I Can" lists. The final chapter focuses on the issue of job credit for volunteer work experience. The HAVE Skills Survey and "I Can" lists are included in the appendices. (NRB)
