Job Readiness Workshop. A Resource Manual for Instructing Adult Job Seekers in the Job Search Process. Special Paper No. 20.
Bobbitt, J. Frank; Booth, Jim
The job readiness workshop was designed to offer participants improved methods of finding employment. The manual is intended to be used with small groups of unemployed or underemployed individuals in a workshop setting. The workshop's materials are designed as a resource unit, not as a teaching plan. The attempt has been to present desirable objectives, possible leading statements and approaches for the leader, key questions, suggested participant activities, and concerns and problems that participants often have during the job seeking process. The program is made up of eight units best suited for a single all-day meeting. Each unit contains suggested activities developed to increase individual involvement in the learning process. The format is designed to help determine problems, questions, and concerns of participants and then allow for group discussion that will lead to solution of these problems. Units deal with participants' self-evaluation of occupational abilities and liabilities, developing job expectations, completing resumes, discovering jobs in the local area, completing applications, and developing interviewing techniques. Materials for use with each unit are appended. (Author/LJ)
