In the third chapter, outlined in a discussion of setting up a traineeship, are procedures for assessing job preferences, identifying training centers, developing training contracts, and adapting to traineeships. The final chapter of the guide, an examination of the transfer from a traineeship to a job, covers marketing the traineeship, discovering job openings, interviewing for employment, and developing occupational adaptability.
