Replicating Jobs in Business and Industry for Persons with Disabilities. Volume Four.
Tindall, Lloyd W.; And Others
The catalog describes jobs performed in business and industry by persons with disabilities. Each job described is performed by a specific disabled individual. Job descriptions are indexed by disability and job title. Each job description specifies the type of job, the disability of the person performing the job, company information (e.g. company name and description, number of employees, and a contact person), job requirements, job information (e.g. wages, benefits, work schedule, work setting, probationary period, employment history, physical demands, environmental conditions, training period, and amount of supervision); significant duties (e.g. leadership/managerial, problem solving or writing tasks, manual/perceptual tasks); and special considerations (e.g. limitations, special training, job accommodations, personal strengths). After the job descriptions, a section provides marketing strategies for job seekers. Discussed are a personal marketing plan, recording expenses, self-appraisal, job sources, recruitment, the resume, letters, interviewing, discussing salary, disability self-identification, employment incentives, follow-up, surviving the job search, accepting employment, orientation, training, keeping and improving employment, and changes in employment. A section on resources for job replication lists organizations and publications. Appended are a job replication form and a list of related publications. (DB)
