The Career Change Program of the Washington State Employment Security Department.
Ferrini, Paul
This case history describes the Washington State Career Change Program which is designed to respond to the career needs of unemployed residents who have been laid off or unable to continue their jobs as a result of economic, technological, or health factors beyond their control. The career change program assists these individuals in identifying new career objectives, acquiring job-seeking skills and short-term career training, and in finding viable employment in their chosen career areas. In addition to discussing the overall structure and goals of the program, this case also describes the services offered by the nine contracting agencies which implement the program across the state. There is also a delineation of the program's strengths and weaknesses which have been identified during the first two years of operation, as well as a discussion of changes which are anticipated in the future. The program is operated by the Washington Employment Security Department and is funded through the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act and state funds. (LRA)
