Job Placement Guide. A Basic Approach to School-Based Job Placement Programs. Third Edition.
Cass, Monte; Park, Frieda
This manual is designed to give placement and other school personnel detailed suggestions related to the formation and implementation of a school-based job placement service. Chapter 1 serves as an introduction which discusses goals for organizing and implementing job placement services, functions of a job placement service, and essential components of job placement services. Chapter 2 addresses organization of a job placement program, including personnel and their responsibilities and operational planning. Chapters 3 through 6 deal with the four major categories of the duties of a job placement coordinator: preemployment preparation, job development, job placement, and follow-up and follow-through. Each of these chapters describes responsibilities involved in the category considered, major activities within that category, and suggestions for completing the activities. Chapter 7 concentrates on suggestions about how to evaluate a comprehensive job placement service. Each area is explained briefly and is followed by a description of the acceptable evidence or criteria for evaluation for each aspect of the total job placement program. Thirteen appendixes contain samples of resumes and employment applications; examples of business letters for use by employment candidates such as letter of application, letter of acceptance, thank you, etc.; interviewer and interviewee forms; sample job opening forms; employer forms; and various other forms for use by prospective employees, employer placement personnel and by placement coordinators at the job service.
