Job Placement Coordinators Manual.
Kenyon, Lawrence B.
The aim of this manual is to provide a useful tool for school personnel engaged in placement work and related activities in career education and guidance. Chapter l looks at job placement services, including the career resource centers and benefits to students. Chapter 2 outlines preliminary steps and needs in initiating a job placement program. In two parts, Chapter 3 covers: The major duties of placement coordinators, discussing their relationship to the entire program of career education and guidance; and the techniques of counseling, the theories of career development, and such tools as testing and informational services. Chapter 4 attempts to show the wide variety of activities carried on by placement coordinators in the field by presenting extensive excerpts from two annual reports. Chapter 5 stresses the importance of the placement service as a source of evaluation for at least the career education component of the curriculum, and suggests that accountability should be a goal rather than a concept which controls all educational activities. Appendices contain various sample forms and materials useful to a placement coordinator. (TA)
