Project HAVE Skills: A Program to Help Women Find Jobs Using Homemaking and Volunteer Experience Skills. Women's Workbook.
Ekstrom, Ruth B.
This Women's Workbook is part of the HAVE (Homemaking and Volunteer Experience) Skills materials designed to help women identify the job-relevant skills they have learned as homemakers and volunteers and to match those skills with paid jobs. In addition to helping women who are entering paid work after spending time as homemakers or volunteers, this workbook and the accompanying counselor's and employer's guides, can be used to help working women use their unpaid work skills for job changes or advancements. The introductory chapter briefly explains Project HAVE Skills and lists the 10 steps to finding a job involved in the HAVE Skills approach. Chapter Two contains an overview and discussion of questions asked by women returning to the work force. The third chapter provides the user with strategies for reviewing personal experiences. The next three chapters focus on skill identification, match identified skills to work areas and to jobs, and discuss methods of job exploration. The final chapter helps the user to develop a job search plan. A list of references is followed by appendices containing other HAVE Skills supplemental materials. Sample worksheets are also provided throughout the workbook to help the user relate personal experiences and skills to the job search process. (NRB)
