Placing Minority Women in Professional Jobs. R&D Monograph 55.
Glover, Robert W.
Drawn primarily from the experiences of the minority Women Employment Program (MWEP) of the Recruitment and Training Program (RTP, Inc.), material in this handbook is provided as a reference for individuals and groups engaged in efforts to place underutilized minorities and women into jobs they have not traditionally held. Outlines of the procedures utilized in the MWEP outreach effort and rationale for using them are presented in two sections: (1) Program Operations, which covers initial research, employer contact and job development, recruiting applicants, preparation and screening of applicants, making the placement, and follow-up, and (2) Program Mechanics, which deals with establishing an outreach office, recordkeeping and evaluation, staff size, staff selection, staff training, and funding and proposal writing. Resource appendixes contain aids to research on demand factors and supply factors (information sources and suggested procedures); aids to recruiting minority women applicants (a list of studies, handbooks, resource listings, rosters, and directories of individuals, offices, groups, etc.); aids to job development (library reference works with annotations); and job and career counseling resources (an annotated list of standard references on occupational counseling plus specialized sources on minority topics). Also included are suggestions for resume preparation, and job descriptions for field office staff positions of director, recruiter counselor, office manager, and secretary. (JT)
