The Systems Approach to Assessment and Evaluation of Post Secondary Vocational Education Programs. Employability: Review and Survey.
Hartz, John D.; And Others
This publication contains a summary of the literature and research review conducted in order to identify personal/social skills and characteristics important to getting and keeping jobs. Also included are the results obtained from surveys conducted with employees who were graduates of postsecondary vocational technical programs, employees who hire postsecondary vocational graduates, and postsecondary vocational school staff responsible for assisting graduates in obtaining placements. The combination of the literature and research review and the surveys provide the basic data used in the construction of an employability inventory, an instrument designed to assess personal/social skills important for job acquisition and retention. Appendixes contain (1) an annotated bibliography on job seeking and job keeping, (2) forms for the former student survey, employer survey, and school staff survey, and (3) personal, interpersonal, and social skills identified in the literature search for desirable worker characteristics. (The employability inventory is included in CE 019 681.) (CSS)
