Job Placement Handbook for Protected Populations.
Sarkees, Michelle D.; And Others
This guide is designed to provide vocational educators and job placement personnel with assistance and ideas for locating and securing job placement opportunities for individuals from protected populations. (Protected populations include minorities, disadvantaged, handicapped, gifted and talented, linguistically different, migrants, incarcerated, nontraditional placements, and displaced homemakers.) Placement services are defined and their nature discussed. Protected populations are also defined, and relevant legislation is overviewed. Barriers to employment for protected populations are considered with special emphasis on employer concerns. Annotations for some publications dealing with job development then are provided. Other areas covered are responsibilities of school personnel, preparing the student placement profile, matching students with job orders, finding jobs for protected populations, placement options, accommodations for handicapped individuals, need for cooperation, techniques for job placement personnel, and methods of maintaining job availability. A glossary and list of references are appended. (YLB)
