Finding Your Best Job: An Instructional Guide for Job Seeking Skills. S.P.A.C.E. Student Placement and Counseling Effort.
Krusemark, Fred D., Jr.; Leske, Gary W.
This instructional guide presents a comprehensive job-seeking model which uses an open-ended approach to teaching job-seeking skills. Instructors are encouraged to adapt the suggested lessons, worksheets, and other teaching/learning activities to fit their unique situations. The guide is primarily intended for those students who will be seeking immediate, full time employment following high school; however, the instruction may also be beneficial to students going directly to postsecondary education or training. The guide is divided into three primary sections. The first section contains the content for job-seeking skills instruction and consists of five reading modules which deal with the following job-seeking stages: (1) deciding on the job to seek; (2) preparing and using a personal data sheet; (3) searching for job opportunities; (4) applying for jobs; and (5) deciding on a job offer. (Written at the twelfth-grade reading level, these modules are interrelated in that each module builds upon preceding modules.) The second section contains twenty-one lesson guides, which parallel the reading modules and serve as the instructional outline. These lesson guides provide the following: lesson objective, content source, teaching time estimate, teaching ideas, critical learning activities, and a list of other materials needed. The third section consists of 110 sample test items. These items are intended to assist in the planning and/or evaluation of job-seeking skills instruction. (A related guide on placement assistance services is available as CE 020 333.) (BM)
