PASSAGE, v5 n1-10 1993-1994
The 1993-94 PASSAGE newsletter was established to create a customized educational/career-development/work-related informational publication for Pennsylvania's adult learners and educators. The project's main objective was to provide timely workplace and job skills information to Pennsylvania's adult learners, unemployed/underemployed individuals, adult educators, career counselors/trainers, and resource/training centers. The following include what the newsletter project accomplished: established a format that was easy to read; maintained a hands-on approach that could be used by individuals or in whole group settings; expanded its network of educators, business professionals, and adult learners by initiating a reader survey; accessed up-to-date information from area and regional resource centers; used state-of-the-art computer equipment for layout/design; and encouraged feedback and writer contributions. Ten issues were prepared. PASSAGE had a circulation of 2,800. (The 10 issues of PASSAGE are included. Topics include the following: classroom skills used in the workplace, employer expectations, job search strategies, growing career fields, labor market trends, success stories, preparing for the interview, keeping one's job, resume writing, coping with unemployment, financial aid opportunities for school, temporary workers, promotions, turnover in the workplace, and summer employment.)
