Wyatt, Stefanie
This package consists of a work force development recruitment videotape and companion career development curriculum guidebook that are designed to help practitioners encourage females of all ages to consider training for high-wage computer-based technical jobs. The 15-minute videotape discusses things women want from employment, benefits and requirements of computer-based technical jobs entail, and qualifications employers are seeking in applicants for those jobs. Although it was created to supplement the videotape, the guidebook can also be used as a minicurriculum for facilitators and learners. The following topics are among those discussed in sections 1-7: using the videotape and guidebook; women in the work force; computer jobs on the rise; occupational profiles of computer technician jobs; women and nontraditional work; assessment; and city searches (learning situations where teams of learners use a scavenger hunt format to collect information on particular topics). Sections 8 and 9 contain the following: sources of information on occupational opportunities in New York and elsewhere; addresses of websites devoted to computer-related educational and employment opportunities; New Ventures Program sites; and 21 references. The following are among the materials included: facilitator and client objectives, fact sheets, transparency masters (not in ERIC copy), and personal stories from successful women. (MN)
