A Step-By-Step Guide to Job Placement.
Miller, Susan F.
The document presents a procedural guide for setting up and managing a job placement program for high school graduates. Four alternative models are presented: (1) a school-based model involving a placement person, placement office, comprehensive program, and integration into the school program; (2) a placement team model, involving teacher volunteers; (3) a regional center model, a cooperative plan utilizing a regional vocational center; and (4) a senior placement assistant model, featuring the active involvement of a placement assistant during the final semester to assist seniors in job-seeking. Steps for a comprehensive placement program are presented together with materials that will help the students and placement person in the process of job-seeking: (1) needs assessment, discussing student needs and employer needs; (2) job development; (3) student development, descriptions of job-seeking/job-keeping seminars, services for undergraduates, games, activities, forms, and questionnaires; (4) the placement system, discussing the placement of younger students, the company file, various job-related forms, placing seniors before graduation, and coordination with existing placement agencies; (5) student followup, focusing on employer role, post-graduate followup methods and forms, and undergraduate followup groups; and (6) evaluation methods and forms.
