We regularly ship samples of our best-practice career/job search planners—LEAP and YES—to workforce and career services events across the U.S. These samples are not catalogs or abbreviated versions of our products. Our samples are full products, so administrators, managers, and staff of workforce, employment, reemployment, and career programs can evaluate them for use with their job seekers, dislocated workers, unemployed individuals, UI claimants, youth, transitioning workers, veterans, students, and other populations, especially those in WIOA programs.
We stamp these tools with the word “SAMPLE” and tuck an informative flyer inside that highlights key features and benefits to program participants and staff. The samples usually are included in registration bags.
In addition, through a sponsorship fee, our participation supports these conferences, which are attended by thousands of workforce development and career services professionals.
Not attending one of these upcoming events and interested in reviewing LEAP and YES? No worries! If you are a workforce development or career services professional who assists job hunters and the unemployed, request your complimentary LEAP and YES samples now, and we will send them to you via First Class Mail.
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.
