Procedures, practices, and materials contained in this guide for counselors have been field tested and successfully used in a variety of school settings. The guide has two major sections. The first section deals with the development of the original project and includes discussion of student needs assessment, staff assessment, and establishing priorities/meeting needs. The second section deals with the four components of the placement process, covered separately with accompanying field tested practices, procedures, and materials. Components are (1) data (student data, community resources, career resource file, employer data, post-high school training and education, and resource center), (2) preparation (pre-employment preparation, job seeker errors, attitude and employability, a practitioner's point of view, pre-employment materials, developing a mini-unit format, post-high school training and education, summary of preparation and exploration program, approaches for the infusion of activities), (3) placement (telephone procedures, the job order form, the job match, referral process, job development), and (4) follow-up. Appendixes contain a personal needs survey form, follow-up survey, sample student data collection forms, sample for recording employer data, and a sample employer job order form. (TA)
