An Evaluation of Results and Effectiveness of Job Banks: Volume I, Parts I and II.
Ultrasystems, Inc., Irvine, CA.
In order to assist the Manpower Administration of the U. S. Department of Labor in the planning, development, and expansion of over a hundred computerized "job banks," located in nearly every State, field interviews were conducted with job applicants, employers, Employment Service staff, and community agencies to evaluate the current status of these data based and to make recommendations for program improvement. Positive results achieved by using "job banks" are detailed, and the program itself is delineated. Major program benefits include the introduction of computer technology to manpower service delivery, with its potential for computerized job-matching. Optimizing the "job bank" and its functions is suggested, rather than viewing the whole system as transitional and therefore dismissing its major problems. The impact of local "job banks" on Employment Service goals, Employment Service staff, and on the local community are discussed, noting improvements in managing the Employment Services and other human relations aspects, such as better service to the job-seeker. There is little correlation, however, between program achievements and Employment Service goals. (AG)
