The part-time employment forecast for summer school students was read yesterday as "bright for men; cloudy for women."
Students who are counting on funds from casual work for their summer budgets should go to the Weld Hall 30 Office of Summer Employment as quickly as possible to register for work, employment officials urged. Although a great many jobs are available as summer school opens, they are expected to go very quickly.
The Summer School Employment Office, meanwhile, has organized a regular and casual part-time job service and will continue both to look for and to assign jobs for the rest of the summer session.
No young man who is really interested in working should find it impossible to get some part-time work, sumer employment officers estimated. But young women and even some highly-talented older people will have more difficulty. There are almost always odd jobs or moving furniture or mowing lawns which fellows can pick up. Girls looking for work, however, must have more than "charm." There is a lot of demand for young women with specific skills, such as typing, comptometer operation, and shorthand. Since such specialized skills are unusual in summer school girls, however, the picture is not bright.
Students who have employment ideas of their own are urged to consult the employment office about them. Often the office can offer special assistance and advice on the basis of past experience with certain firms and certain kinds of employment. Often the aids given can be as simple--and as important--as getting a students beyond a reception desk and arranging an appointment with the employment director of a business firm, officers of the employment office pointed out.
Jobs presently available are quite varied. There are openings tutoring various languages and other subjects--particularly for high school students; translation of scientific book reviews from foreign journals; typing; comptometer operation; acting as subjects for psychological experiments; lifeguards; tennis instructors; bus drivers; library workers; and switchboard operators.
