Student Job Placement Service. Final Report.
Frichtel, Joseph F.
This 3-year pilot project demonstrated the feasibility of schools assuming responsibility for the job placement of students at every exit level, and established a systematic, effective job placement service capable of serving all secondary students. The project was operational at a high school serving 1,303 students of which the racial balance is 75% black and 25% white. Through the cooperation of the business community, the job placement service acted as an employment agency and also provided students the opportunity to prepare themselves for the world of work through programs focused on employer expectations. Of the 884 graduates using the service during the 3-year period, 613 requested job assistance. Of these, 109 full-time and 208 part-time placements were found. Over 900 other students requested assistance in part-time and summer placements. Students most difficult to place were school dropouts with behavior problems. The cooperation from business leaders, counselors, teachers, administrators, and community resource people contributed to the success of the project. Recommendations are offered for the establishment of similar services. Project forms are appended. (RG)
