The military : purveyor of fine skills and comportment for a few good men by Janice H Laurence( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The military, according to Assistant Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness Edwin Dorn, is the largest educational and training institution in the U.S.- and perhaps the world. It has been suggested that the recent initiation of military downsizing will, therefore, have implications for the civilian workforce. In her paper, Dr. Laurence provides information that is key to understanding how the military drawdown will affect the civilian labor market. Dr. Laurence begins by describing the occupational structure of the military and comparing entry-level positions for military and civilian occupations and follows with a discussion of the military's workforce diversity, educational opportunities, and ability to impart comportment skills. The paper concludes with a commentary on the downsizing itself, in particular how the training and job opportunities provided by the armed forces will now be available, literally, to only "a few good men."--Web site abstract
Will military reductions create shortages of trained personnel and harm the career prospects of American youth? by Stephen R Barley( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the military does not serve society primarily as an educational institution, many Americans now view military service as a springboard to careers in the civilian economy--and since the American economy and the military are deeply entwined, a reduction in military spending promises to create social and economic difficulties. If military training does prepare individuals for civilian jobs, then reductions in personnel may constrict the availability of trained individuals in the labor market, just as firms begin to realize that they require a higher skilled workforce. This paper seeks to inform the debate on military reductions by examining the evidence for returns to military service in the civilian economy. Its objective is to identify the dynamics that enable veterans to do better in the civilian economy and the groups of veterans who benefit most fiom military service. Dr. Barley concludes by considering policy options that are consistent with the evidence on the civilian effects of military service."--Web site abstract
School lessons, work lessons : recruiting and systaining employer involvement in school-to-work programs by Irene Lynn( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was conducted to explore the motivation for (or against) employer participation in long-standing school-business partnership programs that offer substantive work experience and learning at the worksite. Information was gathered through a literature search, in-person surveys of school personnel and selected employers (n=21), a phone survey of a larger sample of 224 employers, and employer focus groups in 7 sites throughout the United States. A total of 18 secondary schools were included in the survey, along with participating employers. Highlights of the findings are as follows: (1) schools tended to have both worksite-based programs and programs without such a component, with work areas usually determined by faculty skills and the few resources allocated to the partnership programs; (2) the extent to which students learn occupation-specific skills varies greatly among work sites, with such tie-ins most likely in comprehensive vocational-technical schools; (3) the schools are usually able to place all willing students in these programs despite their lack of organized and focused employer recruiting; (4) employers are generally pleased with the student workers and consider them productive employees; and (5) employers are motivated to participate in the programs as much by the desire to acquire entry-level workers as by the desire for community service. Recommendations were made to improve the knowledge component of the worksite programs and to increase employer recruitment. (The survey instruments are included in the report. Contains 30 references.) (kc)
