Cooperative Jobline: An Employment Lead Sharing Resource Network for Service Providers.
Hoffman, Rosemarie; Whitehead, Joann
The "Cooperative Jobline" is an employment-lead sharing network established and initiated by the Resource Council of Genesee County, a team of service providers from non-profit agencies whose prime function is in placement, job training, and development. This centralized, cooperative exchange system of current, up-to-date, job-related information lists specific job openings, future available positions, applications being accepted, firms accepting resumes, training programs, and other pertinent data. It is implemented by use of a code-a-phone system and a message tape. Only one individual from each member agency has access to the telephone number. The system is also capable of receiving job leads from members. The Resource Council has become a necessary appendage to the success of the Jobline. It meets once a month, works as a unit on community projects for the unemployed, and shares knowledge of programs and activities. (Appendixes, amounting to over one-half of the report, include information sharing forms, Cooperative Jobline Monitor Sheets, a Cooperative Jobline survey form, a report on the Veterans Employment/Information Program, and an interagency resource reference notebook that offers information on agencies--their services, scope of programing, contact persons, and educational resources and material.)
