------------------------------------------------------------------
General Description
------------------------------------------------------------------

Looking for Work is an interactive guide for professionals and
managers seeking to change or find employment. It is a step-by-step
aid in planning and mounting an effective marketing campaign. It
contains six units and almost two dozen worksheets, checklists and
models to structure and guide the search for a new job.

The program's theme is that a job search is a marketing campaign -
one that requires planning, analysis, targeted markets, and
commitment to a schedule of tasks and activities. Using sound training
principles, the program provides an introduction to a job search, a
substantial amount of guidance in analyzing one's "natural" market,
and considerable direction and structure in carrying out the many
tasks and activities of an efficient campaign. It not only shows one
how to go about it but through a series of exercises and worksheets,
takes the user through the process. When that user completes the
program, he/she will have a list of potential employers, a resume, a
core marketing letter, and will be well-prepared for job interviews.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Directions
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The files in the program have been compressed and need to be expanded
in the installation process. You can install the program to another
floppy diskette or to a hard drive by typing "install" at the A: or
B: prompt. You will be asked to specify a drive and directory; C:\WORK
is the default drive and directory, but you can change it to any other
drive or directory, including another floppy diskette.

To start the program, type WORK, then hit . The program will
ask you to sign in. When you finish a unit and exit, your progress
will be stored in a file. When you sign in subsequently, the program
will take you directly to the next unit, or to a menu.

You cannot move the files to a different dirve or directory; if you
wish to run the program from some other drive\directory, you must run
the install program again.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
Target audience, Objectives & Content
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Target audience: The intended audience consists of professional and
managerial personnel who are seeking to change jobs or who have
been laid-off or fired. Many have never been through a job search
before and need substantial help on even the most basic tasks and
activities. Others may have changed jobs several times, but need a
systematic approach and step-by-step guidance. Most people put too
much emphasis on the resume and not enough on networking and on a
series of marketing letters. Almost nobody prepares adequately for
interviews, which is the most crucial step in the process.

Objectives: Users will be able to organize and carry out an effective
job search campaign, including in-depth analysis of work history,
a solid core resume & marketing letters sent to appropriately targeted
prospective employers, and preparation for detailed interviews. Users
will analyze their own financial situation and work history, and will
readily identify industries and firms which represent the highest
likelihood of a match with the job specifications.

Specifically, the program will:
1) Assist the user in developing a personalized plan, including a
time-table and specific activities;

2) Review and analyze the user's financial resources, time frame and
other constraints;

3) Provide step-by-step guidelines, checklists and criteria for
developing lists of target companies and other sources;

4) Provide forms, information and guidance in preparing a detailed
employment history;

5) Step-by-step instructions in preparing industry-specific resumes
and marketing letters;

6) Week-by-week lists of tasks and activities, and milestones with
which to assess progress.

Program features:
Multi-track: Because the strategy and timing are likely to differ for
people in different circumstances, the program queries the user and
directs him or her to a track based on the following information: age,
income, current employment status, motivating factors, willingness to
relocate, and level in the organization.

Structured activities, analysis & guidelines: The program uses a variety
of worksheets, checklists and exercises, creative instructional
techniques to guide an analysis of his/her personal situation, a very
detailed work history, systematic listing (using SIC codes) of related
industries and firms, and step-by-step instructions on the preparation
of the core resume and several marketing letters.

While most users will proceed through the program in linear fashion,
experienced job hunters can use the software as a reference work,
skipping some sections to concentrate on areas where they need help.

DISCLAIMER
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Users of Looking for Work must accept this disclaimer of warranty:
"Looking for Work" is supplied as is. The author disclaims all
warranties, expressed or implied, including without limitation,
the warranties of merchantability and of fitness for any purpose.
The author assumes no liability for damages, direct or consequen-
tial, which may result from the use of Looking for Work.


---------------------------------------------------------------------
OTHER INFORMATION

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Looking for Work is a shareware program and is provided at no charge
to the user for a limited evaluation. You may share it with friends,
but please do not give it away altered or as part of another program.
The essence of user-supported software is to provide personal
computer users with quality software without high prices, and yet to
provide incentive for authors to continue to develop new products.

If you use this program beyond a cursory examination, you should feel
honor-bound to make the $29 registration payment. The registration fee
will license one copy for use on any one computer at any one time. Pay-
ment of that fee will bring you two additional lessons: (1) using
on-line resume banks and job listings and, (2) preparing for interviews.

You must treat this software just like a book. An example is that this
software may be used by any number of people and may be freely moved
from one computer location to another, so long as there is no possibil-
ity of it being used at one location while it's being used at another --
just as a book cannot be read by two different persons at the same time.

Commercial users (outplacement firms, employers, etc.) of Looking for Work
must register and obtain a site license within 30 days of first use if
they intend to use or distribute copies of Looking for Work, or this
examination license is withdrawn. A site-license is available to career
consulting and outplacement firms at a one-time fee of $2,500. Members
of the International Association of Career Consulting Firms are entitled
to additional benefits. For information, write or phone InterDigital.

Anyone distributing Looking for Work for any kind of remuneration must
contact InterDigital for authorization. This authorization will be
granted automatically to distributors recognized by the ASP as adhering to
its guidelines for shareware distributors, and such distributors may begin
offering Looking for Work immediately. (However, InterDigital must still
be advised so that the distributor can be kept up-to-date with the latest
version of Looking for Work.)

LIST of FILES

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
BENEFITS of REGISTRATION
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Educational programs are like games -- few users bother to pay the
registration fee, no matter how modest it is. As an incentive to do so,
InterDigital will send a registered copy (without "beg" screens) which
includes two additional lessons: (1) Making use of on-line job banks and
modifying your resume for computer-based resume databases; (2) Preparing
for interviews. There is material in this version on getting ready for
interviews, but work with several career consulting firms during the
year enabled us to enrich it enormously -- to the point where it is now
a separate unit loaded with practical advice and activities for the
serious applicant.

Employers and providers of outplacement and career counseling services
may find that the program saves them substantial time and introduces a
high measure of consistency and professionalism in dealing with clients.
They may wish to have InterDigital customize the program with their
firm's name and with other information. Any commercial use of Looking
for Work without payment of a licensing fee is a violation of copyright.
InterDigital will customize the program for outplacement and career
counseling firms and employers for a modest fee.
