How To Design and Deliver an Effective Job Development and Placement Program. Neighborhood Networks.
Department of Housing and Urban Development, Washington, DC. Office of Multifamily Housing.
This second of four publications in the Neighborhood Networks Employment Series focuses on how Neighborhood Networks centers can deliver effective job development and placement programs for residents who are on public assistance, are unemployed, or are underemployed. This guide explains how Neighborhood Networks centers can develop relationships with businesses, and then use these relationships to help residents obtain jobs. The guide provides the following 10-step approach to developing a job development and placement program: (1) evaluate employment characteristics of the population to be served; (2) assess economic opportunities; (3) establish relationships with potential employers; (4) identify and fill jobs by using the broad-based marketing approach; (5) identify and fill jobs using the sectoral approach; (6) manage the job interview process; (7) make the job match: selecting the best candidate for the job; (8) prepare the candidate for work; (9) provide follow-up support; and (10) expand relationships with employers. The guide also contains three appendixes: a job order information sheet, telemarketing tips, and a sample telephone script. (KC)
