Pre-Employment Skills. An Instructional Pac for Volunteers.
Cincinnati Public Schools, OH. Dept. of Research and Development.
The purpose of this instructional "pac" is to provide individuals with the skills and information needed when seeking employment. The curriculum, designed for ten sessions, is intended to be taught by volunteers from the local community, business, industry and the civil service. Different activities are used in the class sessions and include discussions, role-playing and individual task work. Following a pretest, session 1 gives an overview of the course and discusses the following items: birth certificate; work certificate; school data card; social security card; and a personal inventory. In session 2, how to write a personal inventory is presented. Session 3 explains the role of the Civil Service Commission and covers how to fill out applications. Session 4 deals with employment agencies and writing a resume. A discussion of unions is provided in session 5. Session 6 covers newspaper classification ads, reading want ads, and writing a letter of application. Interviews and interview techniques are discussed in sessions 7 and 8. Session 9 covers fringe benefits, fair employment practices and the minimum wage. Work attitudes are discussed in session 10 which is followed by a posttest and feedback from the volunteers. (JH)
