Occupational Essentials: Skills and Attitudes for Employment. Third Edition.
Richter, David J.
The student handbook teaches six skills which are basic to seeking employment, working on the job, and resigning from the job. These skills include matching talents to the job, locating job openings, securing a job, succeeding and advancing on the job, and how to "quit" a job. Although it is useful as a course in orientation to the world of work at the secondary level, the course is generally aimed at adults in manpower training programs, correctional institutions, job corp programs, and for general education development test candidates. The course utilizes a wide range of instructional techniques including self-instructional exercises, guidance lessons, role playing sessions, instructor and group evaluations, checklists, filmstrips, dictionaries and other source books, and self-evaluations. Each lesson has been individualized when practical. Though a fourth grade reading level is expected of the student, individuals at lower levels can profit from the course with more attention from the instructor. (Author/MW)
