Instructor's Guide and Job Seekers Workbook.
Job Information and Seeking Training Program, Indianapolis, IN.
This workbook is intended to teach disadvantaged, handicapped, or "hard-core" unemployed persons to find their own jobs. Although the book is designed for a self-study approach, it is important that a trainer/instructor/vocational counselor be available for assistance. The eight chapters cover (1) Employer Expectations (appearance, attendance/punctuality, skills/abilities/interests), (2) Data Sheets, (3) Application, (4) Job Card, (5) Telephone Contact, (6) Interview, (7) Job Leads, and (8) Resume. Each section begins with the instructor's guide, providing this information: goals and objectives, physical set-up and equipment, time required and relation of material to group size, role of trainer, verbal instructions, suggestions for individualizing training techniques, and closing the session. The job seeker's section contains informational materials, exercises, learning activities, sample forms, and examples. (YLB)
