Job Forum Hears Personnel Chiefs
Production-industry jobs were the subjects of the year's first career forum at Winthrop Junior Common Room last night. Over 100 students listened as three personnel leaders talked on the kind of men industries are looking for.
George G. Hughes, a personnel director of General Motors, said corporations were interested in a college man's achievement in his course of study, extra-curricular activities, work experience, and personality.
"Opportunities in management are definitely limited for a young man," said William Whigham, Jr., coordinator of personnel for Carnegio Illinois Steel Corporation. He advised men to get into a company that would provide its own management training.
