Abstract

This research study examined the effect of a job readiness training program on job readiness self-efficacy and work personality factors among 77 job readiness training participants in a major urban city. Participants were compared for gender and ethnic differences. T-test results indicated significant differences in the self-perceptions of participants and the job-readiness evaluations their instructors completed in relation to job readiness self-efficacy and some aspects of work personality. Increased focus on interpersonal and social skills training that incorporates both process and performance training programs as part of a comprehensive job readiness training program is suggested.
