Realistic Job Previews (RJPs)

Links to RJP videos from different States (including Michigan). Supplemental materials to describe and enhance the information in the videos include: A one page summary explaining the development, use, and effectiveness of RJP videos on the recruitment, selection, and retention of child welfare workers and a resource list of projects, tools, and training on recruitment, screening, and selection of child welfare workers. RJPs are designed to present a balanced view of both the rewards and demands of child welfare positions in order to align the goals and expectations of applicants with the requirements of child welfare work. The goal of an RJP is to improve the fit between the applicant and the job, increasing job satisfaction and reducing the number of new staff who quit because their job roles and demands were not what they had envisioned.
