New Careers in Local Government.
White, Leslie R.
This manual outlines concepts, approaches, strategies, and tactics for developing new careers in local government. "The Why and What of New Careers" explains the general concepts of New Careers and discusses the manpower needs of local government agencies. "The How of New Careers" describes the process of designing new careers in terms of planning (with emphasis upon functional job analysis), recruting, selecting, and training. "Evaluating the How of New Careers" describes problem areas pointed out by funding and user agencies, including organization and administration, job development, recruitment and selection, and training. "A Statewide New Careers Model" provides a model patterned on work in California to indicate what can be done to change existing personnel systems to solve public service manpower problems by hiring the disadvantaged. Appendixes include (1) career ladders, job descriptions, and community college course titles for subprofessional municipal government occupations, and (2) a sample basic curriculum for new careers employees in local governments.
