Job Development Service provides special activities designed to achieve the following objectives: (1) to increase student knowledge of employment opportunities and procedures; (2) to strengthen employment opportunities for students of inner-city high schools; and, (3) to identify jobs available with local employers and refer students for job interviews. Since the 1966-67 school year, approximately 9529 graduates of five inner-city senior high schools have had an opportunity to participate in a job placement program conducted by the Cleveland Public Schools Job Development Service. Of those students who demonstrated interest in post graduation employment, 95 percent obtained full time jobs. Participants were serviced by project activities that included job preparation classes, counseling services, field trips to plants, and job-interview coaching. Guidance counselors were responsible for organizing and implementing these services. Assisting the guidance counselors, occupational advisors were able to obtain commitments from local industry representatives, to plan meaningful occupation-related field trips, and to identify occupational information resources. An advisory board composed of a cross-section of local employers assisted project planning and implementation efforts. (Author/JM)
