A study was conducted to develop a monitoring system detailing the employment demands in Bridgeport, Connecticut for graduates of the city's vocational and training programs. The project was divided into two phases and involved the collaborative efforts of the educational, community, and business-industrial sectors of Bridgeport. A checklist based on existent or anticipated training programs in the city was designed asking respondents to check the anticipated number of job openings for July 1, 1977 and July 1, 1979 in 58 vocational specialties. In the first phase, 131 employers with 50 or more employees were surveyed with 120 responding while 31 of the 100 employers of 10 to 49 employees surveyed during the second phase responded. The results of phase 1 suggested that larger employers do make occupational projections concerning manpower requirements for one and three years hence and are willing to share this information with educational and training programs. Phase 2 results indicated usable projection data for educational or student planning. Twelve recommendations concerning the monitoring system, counseling services, placement services, training programs, and cooperative work experience programs were made, including that the phase one monitoring technique be established as an ongoing system and be implemented on an annual basis.
