All of the high-risk respondents and a random sample of the low-risk participants were invited to participate in the study and in the MESC's Job Opportunities and Basic Skills II (JOBSII) intervention program, which consisted of a set of job-search skills seminars. JOBS II was patterned after JOBS I, which was offered by the MESC in the late 1980s. A pretest questionnaire (Part 2) was mailed to respondents between February and July 1991, two weeks prior to the invitation to participate in the JOBS intervention seminar. The questionnaire addressed the situation surrounding the respondents' loss of employment, quality of work life in previous job, level of economic hardship, attitudes toward obtaining a new job, social support network, self-esteem, feelings of anxiety and/or depression, hea...
