JOBS NOW Project--Second Year. Final Report for Phase One.
Jobs Now Project, Chicago, IL.
This multifaceted, large-scale E and D project in Chicago is based on the much-emulated "hire now, train later" concept which has become a force in the Concentrated Employment Program. During the second year of operation, JOBS NOW was redesigned to become a four-component program, stressing brief (2 week) orientation for disadvantaged youth and heavy involvement and cooperation of private industry. An outline elaborates the methodology of contacting, involving, and developing capability on the part of business and industry so that movement from disadvantaged status to meaningful employment can be facilitated. Two sections of the report are handbooks on coaching and counseling. Statistical tables provide analysis and evaluation of enrollment, placement, test scores, enrollee profile, and industry involvement. Tables are shown correlating post-placement high support and job retention. Rather than a detailed diary of JOBS NOW, this report is a delineation of what the project personnel believe has been done to accomplish important goals and what they think others can do. The first year report is available in "Manpower Research," 1969, as MP 000 818. (Author/CD)
