Only 14 percent of Radcliffe's Class of '50 will jump from commencement to a waiting job. Exactly twice that number, at least temporarily, will join the ranks of the unemployed.
A poll of the graduating class taken last week by the Annex Appointment Bureau turned up 54 "no job" answers while 27 girls have work plans mapped out. Of these, seven will enter the teaching profession, which led the list.
One fifth of the class intends to go on to graduate studies in academic fields, although only 16 of the 34 students in this category have received definite replies as yet from the schools of their choice. Secretarial schools and the Radcliffe publishing course drew another 11 percent and four girls signed for the 'Cliffe Management Training Program. Two girls will become nurses.
Fifteen girls were classified as becoming "inactive." Marriage was included in that category. Europe attracted another ten, several of whom will remain beyond the summer season. Ten percent of the class was not reached by the poll, which also included February graduates.
An occasional unusual job turned up. Edith Sloan, a February graduate, is at present an assistant principal at the Episcopal School in Liberia. Claire Ham '50 will be working on cancer research at M.I.T.
Aside from teaching, library work, laboratory research, and department store training led the field with three apiece. Two have secretarial jobs waiting and two others will become department assistants at the University, one in anthropology and one in psychology.
Solitary paths in publishing, economic research, interior decorating, real estate, and clerical work called individual members from 1950.
