Handbook on the Organization and Administration of a Student Job Placement Service for a Secondary School.
Crawford, Lucy C.; Jewell, Lloyd M., Jr.
Presented in four sections, this handbook was prepared to assist school administrators and placement service personnel in the organization and administration of a student job placement service for a secondary school. The handbook is primarily based on results obtained from developmental projects in a series of workshops provided to train placement directors and secretaries in nine exemplary student job placement services in Virginia. Section I presents the following objectives of a placement service: placement of graduates in full-time or part-time jobs; placement of early school leavers; placement of students in part-time jobs; coordination of preplacement training for high school students and graduates seeking employment; advising students of occupational opportunities available through continuing education; administration; and public relations. Section II describes the organization of such a service and outlines the duties of the director and the secretary. Section III describes the operation of a student job placement service under the following categories: clients to be served; coordination with other agencies concerned with placement; and advisory committees. The final section discusses the important administrative functions involved, including establishing goals, program planning, research, evaluation, preemployment training, budgeting, and public relations. Related materials and sample forms are appended. (BM)
