Then Ask These Questions Campus Recruiter Has Advice For Job Hunters SINGING FOR YOUNGSTERS Breeze strums his guitar as he sings for the children of Cho Bung as his unit visits the village. (AP Wirephoto) Medcaps Bring Confidence To Viet Villages By GEORGE MCARTHUR CHO BUNG. Vietnam (AP) -Just after du«k every evening a rubber-sandaled militiaman climbs the bullet-scarred brick tower guarding this Mekong Delta hamlet. He fires two shots that resound over the paddies and along the narrow Tarn Hiep River. They signal the resumption of the nightly state of siege that Cho Bung has endured through years of war. From the moment the two shots ring from ttie 20 foot tower, the surrounding countryside of paddies, nipa patches and ca nals becomes enemy territory. Except for the military radio in the militia's mud fort. Cho Bung is cut off from the world. The only outsiders working in the hamlet-five teachers-depart by motor scooter each a f t - ernoon'. They travel 10 miles to the provincial capital of My Tho rather than stay overnight in Cho Bung. ATTACKED TO LAND The villagers accept stoically this state of affairs. Their own By VIVIAN BROWN AP Newsfeitures Writer Students can save time and energy in job hunting by asking campus recruiters the right questions, suggest E. A. Looser, vice-president of personnel for a firm (Rockwell Manufacturing Company of Pitsburgh) On the other hand, he thinks business firms who do campus recruiting have an obligation to qualify and disqualify students .0 the best of their ability while Lhey are on campus. "They shouldn't go there as head hunters, but on the basis that young people are going to be helped. If a student isn t right for a company he should bo told, and perhaps a suggestion made that he is more suited to another industry." he explains. Loeser has five children, the eldest 17. and he hopes t h a t some day someone along the line will "give his children help · and direction. i CAUTIONS STUDENTS ! He cautions students to ; remember that they arc making '· job impressions to recruiters as ,'well as o b t a i n i n g information, l a n d that students with suitable attitudes will be invited to visit companies for interviews. Personality may play an important part in creating the first impression, he points out. Young people may get a hit foggy from interviews with different recruiters, but if they stick pretty much to the same points with a l l . a decision may emerge, he says. | Here is what he suggest;.: | First, listen to the recruiter's presentation. Be polite a n d attentive. It may be a hard-sell presentation, but if you listen, you can learn a great deal. When the recruiter has explained the corporation and asks whether there arc qucs- :ions, that's when you say, "I lave 10 questions." SUGGESTIONS Loeser suggest you proceed along these lines: How many new products has your company introduced in the last five years? Tell mt about them. (New products mean growth. Few companies survive long] on buggy whip operations. A manageable f l o w of new products means an alert company that will probably continue o have something to sell). How does your company make use of personnel testing procedures? ( T e s t i n g techniques are so well advanced ,hat the personnel director who doesn't use good test batteries is doing a poor job . . . Properly administered, testing can help you avoid a career mistake, even though many people resent testing). EVALUATION How often will I be evaluated in my job? (Business executives are realizing that the need to know 'how I'm doing' is a strong psychological factor in human makeup. If a man is not doing well, he should be counseled for redirection or improvement. II a rnan is doing well, he should be told. He should also know where the next potential rtep is lor him). Who ate your chief competitors? (This is a quick way to grade a company's relative success. If major competitors are listed, they may be researched to see how all compete in the market and whether ground is being gained, lost or remains statusquo). MARKETS What are your m a j o r markets? (Look for markets that are serving change--where the action is). What happens to salary increases when the company hits a slump? (Some companies end to scale operations up and down with each business storm. Strong companies plan for the x?st over a long haul. Recruiters may be coy on t h i s subject). What per cent of sales does your company spend on research? (New products need a source of life. Research is it Make sure your recruiter-inter viewer gives you a solid an swer. What per cent of sales goes to research and product development? What new pro ducts or techniques have come from company labs in the pas' five years)? RANKING Does your company rank small, medium or large amoni American corporations? (A middle-size company can be interesting. A too-small com pany can be a comer or be hopeslcssly outclassed. Many companies in the $100 million to S500 million Mies bracket are big enough to hnve organizational depth and solid markets But size doesn't matter. You hould find a place where you an develop personally). Is your company stronger in manufacturing or marketing? Look for the company that loes both well. Good urfer the bite of unless they are properly. But top LANSING. Mich. (AF) -"I'm going to clean tho*e streets like they've never been cleaned before." promised Gov. William G. Milliken as he wa* fitted in his office with a pair of wooden shoes. The fitting Tuesday was part of the preparation for the 40th annual Tulip Festival in Holland. Mich., which opens May 14 with a traditional sweepdown of the streets with large brooms. Doctor Recovers can do" little to force shoddy products upon the puhlic). ENJOY YOUR JOB? Do YOU enjoy your job and vould you take another one In he company? (If you learn the career path of the recruiter-low long he has been in his iresent job and what o t h e r experience he has had with the organization and t h e direction plans to take, you m a y earn a good deal about the company's development program). The answers to all your questions should give you an understanding of the recruiter's en thusiasm for his company. And that's what you are looking for.
