Marketing Ourself.
Monfette, Ronald J.
This speech discusses various aspects of a placement director's work in a large community college. A successful placement director is an ambitious extrovert. Placement requires an ample budget, and approximately 1,000 square feet of space for offices and parking. Students should be helped to prepare resumes and the placement director should prepare introductory letters and other referrals, and arrange these in a file. He should also prepare students for job interviews by rehearsals and encouragements. A brief form should later be sent to students, asking for feedback. The second major task of a placement director is to have detailed information about the various kinds of job openings in and around the city where the college is located. This can be obtained from newspapers and through establishing personal contracts with major companies who might need employees. The director should try various means to get in touch with company officials, and inform them about the college and its programs and how the graduates can be helpful to them in their employment settings.
