Helping Employers Get Help; A Guide to Job Development and Work-Training Programs.
Holmes, Horace R.
The District of Columbia Manpower Administration (DCMA) is a federal agency established as part of the Department of Labor. It provides the leadership for an integrated system of cooperating manpower agencies working to bring people and jobs together. Two major tools for achieving the agency's goals are the Job Bank System and improved job development coordination. The Job Bank System is a clearinghouse for jobseekers and employers seeking workers, which produces a daily computerized listing of available jobs and training opportunities in the area. By using this listing in neighborhoods of high unemployment and coordinating job development activity, DCMA is moving toward a more comprehensive use of the total Washington Metropolitan Area manpower resources. Other aspects of this program include (1) Information Services, (2) Manpower Training Programs, (3) DCMA Technical Services, and (4) Suggested Guidelines for Employers of Disadvantaged Workers.
