Curriculum for Training Job Placement Personnel in Michigan.
Ferris State Coll., Big Rapids, MI. Center for Occupational Education.
A study was conducted to determine what job placement specialists need, as professionals, to be better equipped to serve the employment-seeking population. Survey information was gathered from four sets of sources: job placement personnel; business and industry; a nationwide survey of programs; organizations, training, and curriculum existing in other states; and a statewide search of four-year public postsecondary institutions. Overall, the responses demonstrated a need and provided a strong basis for the development of a job placement training program. (Following the narrative, which also includes data tables and comments, are the objectives for the six training modules that are the basis of a recommended curriculum. Information on preservice and inservice training is accompanied by copies of a proposed preservice college curriculum and a two-day inservice training program for job placement personnel. Appendixes contain instruments, definitions, a list of job placement tasks, and a sample job description.) (YLB)
