Make the Most of LEAP and YES with Free Administrator’s Guides

Many workforce development professionals who use our two career assessments, Layoff-to-Employment Action Planner (LEAP) and Your Employment Search (YES), find great value in the reader-friendly, non-technical Administrator’s Guide that accompanies each tool. Like the LEAP and YES, the Administrator’s Guides were developed by Career Action Resources, LLC.

The LEAP Administrator’s Guide and YES Administrator’s Guide give background information on each assessment’s research and development, suggestions and tips for individual and group use, and other many helpful details.

Here is a partial Table of Contents from the LEAP Administrator’s Guide:

  • The Need for the Layoff-to-Employment Action Planner (LEAP)

You will receive step-by-step suggestions for using the LEAP and YES in one-on-one and group settings.

From the Administrator's Guide information, you can run a job search workshop or develop a consistent reemployment planning session for your center or agency if desired. The Administrator’s Guides also can help you adapt LEAP and YES for use in shorter and longer timeframes, depending on your setting and situation.
