Target: Employment. A Resource Guide to Job-Seeking and Job-Retention Materials.
Goh, Sharon R.; And Others
This handbook is designed as a resource guide to aid teachers and counselors to select quality materials to meet specific instructional needs in teaching employability skills. To help the user select appropriate materials, the handbook includes a chapter on each of the following five major components of employability skills: (1) decision making, (2) self-analysis, (3) occupational analysis, (4) the job-seeking process (including individual minichapters on resource networks, credential preparation, resume design, application forms and procedures, and interviewing procedures), and (5) job retention (including minichapters on interpersonal skills, work habits and attitudes, planning for the future, and job change). Each major and minichapter uses the same format with the following components: a brief discussion of the topic and an overview of evaluated instructional materials in the area; a list of instructional components on the topic, to be used as a guide for the instructor either in constructing his/her own materials or in choosing among already available materials; and an alphabetized list of materials either focusing entirely on this topic or containing a unit or significant discussion in the area. The materials listed by title in each chapter of the handbook are fully described in an annotated bibliography at the back of the book. (KC)
