Labor relations work is not easy for the freshly graduated college student to obtain, speakers at last night's career conference in Dunster House explained.
Representing the side of management in the labor field, Robert Saltonstall, Jr. '33 described it as one with a tremendous future. But, he added, openings are available only for those men with extensive training and experience in business administration.
Roy Stevens of the United Steelworkers, CIO, and Alfred Van Wart of the Brotherhood of Train Workers. AFL, spoke on the subject from the standpoint of labor itself. Despite the increasing influence of workers and the rise in organized unions, they explained that the number of positions open for outsiders was almost none, and that entry into labor relations work was possible only after a long working association with the union itself.
