Merit Systems: Hiring the Disadvantaged.
Prepared under authority of the Economic Opportunity Act, this New Careers manual deals largely with specific personnel functions in which manpower project directors and staff members can work closely with government officials--state and local as well as Federal--to alter public service merit system requirements as they affect disadvantaged groups. Such aspects as job redesign, recruitment, training, examinations and written tests, alternative selection methods, and eligibility standards in general, are discussed. Nine references are included.
