Project HAVE Skills: A Program to Help Women Find Paid Jobs Using Their Homemaking and Volunteer Work Skills. Counselor's Guide.
Ekstrom, Ruth B.
This counselor'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 is to help counselors work with women who are entering paid work after spending time as homemakers or volunteers. Materials in this guide, the accompanying Women's Workbook, and the employer's guide can also be used to help working women use their unpaid work skills for job changes or advancement. The introductory chapter discusses the rationale for recognizing homemaking and volunteer skills and explains the design of the model HAVE Skills program. The remainder of the guide is divided into 12 sections; each section outlines a HAVE Skills Counseling Program session. The sessions concentrate on identifying skills, reviewing experiences, matching skills to occupations, identifying job values and needs, exploring occupations, writing resumes, searching for jobs, and conducting a final wrap-up and evaluation. The appendices contain participant worksheets that are also found in the Women's Workbook along with other supplemental materials. A selected bibliography of career counseling materials for use with adult women is also included. (NRB)
