Work in the New Economy. Careers and Job Seeking into the 21st Century. Revised Edition.
Wegmann, Robert; And Others
This book reviews the present job market and projects the changes in the economy and work lives through the year 2000. It examines the difficulties in finding a job in a constantly changing market and stresses the necessity of learning job-search skills for all adults. The book is organized in 12 chapters grouped in three parts. Part 1 describes the new labor market and expected changes in the economy and work force through the year 2000. Part 2 concentrates on job-search skills, covering information such as how people actually find jobs, deciding on a job objective, getting interviews from people one knows, approaching employers directly, using labor market intermediaries, and learning effective interview strategies. The final part provides information on setting up job search training programs and provides examples of a job search program operated through a state employment service. The book concludes with a 15-page bibliography of over 300 references. (KC)
