The Jobs Program

One innovation, Winning New Jobs, offers a model program for increasing job search skills and psychological resilience in people experiencing work and career transitions. It was developed by the Michigan Prevention Research Center at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research. Winning New Jobs has been rigorously evaluated and replicated in large-scale randomized trials, and has been adopted both in the United States and internationally. Winning New Jobs increases motivation for skillful job search, results in more rapid reemployment, and reduces the risk of depression. Cost-benefit analyses indicate positive economic impacts. Here is an extensive list of publications, research instruments and other materials for Winning New Jobs.
