Job Options for Women in the 80's. Pamphlet 18.
Women's Bureau (DOL), Washington, DC.
This booklet is intended to provide guidance to women who are making decisions about their lives and work and to help them take advantage of the opportunities that are now open to them. Part I gives an overview of the status of women in the work force and some of the factors that affect women's employment. Alternative work patterns are a special focus. Part II provides information about what kinds of jobs will be in demand. The major occupational groups are listed with projected growth for the next decade. Part III contains information about employment counseling or job hunting resources that can be helpful to women as they venture forth into their own futures. Information is provided and resources are listed on these topics: choosing an occupation, becoming qualified, seeking employment (resumes and applications, job hunt, job interviews), and job hunting tips for teen women (getting ready, job hunting, applying, interview). A final section describes these types of information and referral sources: commissions on the status of women; Federal, State, and local agencies; women's centers; and Women's Bureau publications.
