Seven Steps to Finding YOUR Place in the World of Work: A Guide for Jewish and Other Minority Youth. Pamphlet No. 1015.
The booklet opens with a section on the psychology of motivation which is intended to clarify the importance of "placement readiness." The seven steps which are an essential part of the job-finding process are organized with a view toward making it easier for the reader to repeat the process each time it becomes necessary to seek a new and better job. The seven steps are titled: (1) find out what kinds of jobs you can qualify for; (2) find out where the jobs are; (3) ask!; (4) how to write the letter of application and complete the application form; (5) how to compose your resume; (6) preparing for your employment interview; and (7) communication during the interview. Attention is also called to the special aspects of job hunting for minority groups and women, and how to handle problems if they arise. These mainly relate to the effects of unfair discrimination in hiring or not hiring on the basis of race, sex, or religion. The final section on change emphasizes the relationship between true success on the job, openness to a changing world, and skill in finding a new job whenever the situation arises. (Author/BP)
