Working for You: A Guide to Employing Women in Nontraditional Jobs.
Wider Opportunities for Women, Inc., Washington, DC.
Intended to be used by employers, this guide is an informal survey of Wider Opportunities for Women, Inc.'s experience with a number of employers who have successfully placed women in non-traditional jobs. Employers' stories of successes and failures are presented in four sections: (1) personnel plans and administrative commitment; (2) recruitment strategies; (3) breaking-in time; and (4) the long-term effects of employing women in non-traditional positions. The guide contains photographs of women performing jobs which are nontraditional to their sex and uses direct quotes from employers and placement services to illustrate the points made relative to successful placement practices. A three-page annotated list of resources on women in non-traditional jobs is appended. (MEK)
