Abstract:The purpose of the research was to compare two job search assistance (JSA) approaches which were based on the Azrin Job-Finding Club and the Cullen Job Factory, to determine which was more effective in increasing the employment rate of the economically disadvantaged participants. The study was conducted in a local employment and training agency. The research data, collected from April, 1980 through March, 1981, included 123 participants; 48 in the Job Finding Club approach, 45 in the Job Factory approach and 30 in a comparison group receiving regular CETA services. All persons eligible for CETA services and interested in the JSA program were included in the experimental groups. A research instrument was used to collect identifying data, basic demographic information, previous work history, current employment information and job search techniques used. Information was obtained through CETA records and personal contact with the participants. The research findings indicated that while the two approaches were different in teaching method there was no statistically significant difference in the employment rates between the experimental groups. Statistically more participants in the experimental groups found jobs than in the comparison group.
