In four steps, Your Employment Search (YES) helps individuals assess their job-search methods and motivation, evaluate where they need the most improvement, learn effective job-hunt skills, and create their employment/reemployment strategy.
YES is an all-in-one self-assessment, planner, and motivational/guidance tool. It features an easy-to-use foldout design. It is used across the USA with the unemployed and job seekers in many programs and settings, including those under WIOA.
Here is a brief summary of each step in YES:
Step 1—Assess: Individuals read each statement about their job search and circle the response that best matches how true the statement is for them.
Step 2—Evaluate: Individuals quickly and easily tally their totals and learn in which areas they could most benefit from help and guidance.
Step 3—Improve: Individuals review active job-search techniques and skills and checkmark those they will use in their employment search.
Step 4—Summarize and Create: On the micro-perforated (marked by red dots) panel, individuals create their unique employment search strategy using insights and information gained from YES. Job hunters can detach the panel if desired and keep it handy for easy reference throughout their job search.
