Job Placement Primer.
Wampler, Elizabeth C.
The publication presents guidelines to assist secondary schools in developing and implementing a job placement service within an existing guidance program. The need for and the goals of a school placement program are given. Areas to be considered in developing a program according to one of three organizational patterns (decentralized, centralized, or cooperative) are outlined as: advisory council selection, survey of local job opportunities, communication between counselors and teachers, coordination with local employment security division and employers, cooperation with community agencies, organization of occupational information, preparation of students for meeting with employers, student involvement in the placement service, followup services, use of student appraisal instruments, forms and record keeping, evaluation of services, career exploration clubs, and program publicity. Descriptions of five model programs with basic purposes of (1) providing a transition from school to work for students leaving the public schools and (2) placing students in work experiences as part of, or as a result of, their education are presented. The descriptions identify the school district, a contract person, purposes, and activities of the programs. The need for recordkeeping is pointed out and 10 sample forms are provided. A 12-item bibliography concludes the guide. (Author/MS)
