Job Placement Manual.
Atlanta Public Schools, GA.
Directed to school systems initiating a job placement program, the Atlanta Public Schools (Georgia) job placement manual discusses how a job placement program can provide a transition from school to work for all students leaving the public schools, as well as place students in paid and non-paid part-time work experiences as a part of their education. The five sections of the manual cover: (1) planning and management (administration, organization, objectives, advisory committee role, decisions, vocational personnel role); (2) student development (student needs, student strengths, job seeking and job holding skills, disadvantaged and handicapped students, communications, and student involvement); (3) job development (employer lists and surveys, and community relations); (4) central record system (student and company surveys, job order forms, student personnel cards, letter of introduction, student and employer followup reports); and (5) followup (followup study, information feedback, and follow-through activities) and follow-through (work adjustment and career development activities and placement linkage). Copies of related information forms are included within the sections. Appendixes include information on child labor laws, interview hints for students, and additional sources. (EA)
