Job Placement. Final Report [from March 17, 1986, through June 30, 1986].
Lake Sumter Community College (Florida) undertook a project to improve its existing job placement services for vocational students. The primary objectives of the project were to develop and implement a system for all vocational students to register with the placement office, inform all vocational students and instructors about the services provided by the placement office, provide students with access to employability skills seminars, develop and implement a schoolwide recordkeeping system so as to have current information on all vocational students, and increase job development activities and employer feedback on the skills that students are acquiring in vocational programs. Through community and student outreach, over 100 students used the improved service, and many local employers used it as well. The employability skills and resume-writing seminars proved to be especially well received. Plans to improve the college's job placement services further include provision of more on-campus interviewing sessions and efforts to get employers from other counties involved. (Appendixes to this report include a career and job placement flyer, student data forms and followup letters, a job placement recruitment letter, and a cooperative education brochure.) (MN)
