How to Get A Job: A Handy Guide for Jobseekers.
Fraenkel, William A.
The booklet is intended for use by young handicapped persons who are jobseekers. The jobseeker is advised to think about what he can do best, to stay away from jobs he cannot do well, to remember what he has liked to do in school, to ask family members to teach him new skills, to ask the teacher's aid, and to make a list of his findings. Recommended are ways to look for a job such as reading the help wanted ads, going to the employment office, and asking friends or family members about jobs. The jobseeker is advised that when he goes alone for a job interview he should dress properly know about travel, be on time, and take records such as a social security card. Suggestions for reporting to work include knowing what questions the boss might ask, learning job duties, and finding out about the pay. Two lists are provided, one containing 100 kinds of jobs, the other a checklist-test on important points covered in the booklet. (MC)
