GILMORE NEA Staff Correspondent . .WASHINGTON - (NEA) — Members of Amercia's high school class of '54 will not have it so easy this June when they go out to seek fame and fortune. But Uncle Sam is doing everything he can to help out. The U. S. Employment Service has prepared a comprehensive booklet on job opportunities for graduating teenagers entitled "Job Guide for Young Workers." It is now being distributed to 27,000 high schools throughout the country and national and youth guidance organ- iaztions. When caps and gowns nave been p i- : away, roughly 50 per cent of June's million and a half high school grads will be looking for jobs. Their task is going to be harder than any year since before World War II. Such is the cautious opinion of experts in the Labor Department, who are quick to add that the employment outlook will still be generally good. Secretary of Labor James P. Mitchell says. "While last year's graduate was eagerly sought after by a 'hungry' labor market, lively with competition for all types of workers, thtis year's graduate will more than likely have to compete with his classmates in seeking a job." Thus the job guide should prove extremely useful to many a lad and lass who start pounding the pavement. From bellhops to bricklayers, it surveys prospects in 74 representative occupations. The booklet further explains necessary qualifications for specific jobs, us- ual duties, chances for advancement and how und where the job is to be found. The more promising opportunities in 1954 will be in selling and clerical work, according to the guide. This takes in such positions as cashier, billing clerk, salesperson, typist, receptionist, stenographer, telephone operator and teller. But beginners arc going to have a tough time moving into jobs as seamen, truck drivers, radio repairmen, photographer helpers and art workers. Hardy young men who want to tackle outdoor work should be able to locate themselves in construction as helpers to carpenters electricians and other skilled workers in the trade. Those who have fiddled with a hotrod and have some mechanical aptitude and training can get positions as helpers to au^o mechanics and bodj repairmen. Drug: stores in most every com munity across the nation need soda jerks and countermen. Manj of these type service jobs ar available for beginners if the want to be nurses aides, parkin; lot attendants, ushers or cook helpers, to mention a few. In the production field oppor tunities will depend on genera business and industry condition in which Jobs are found. Women however, will do better in the Ugh industries like communications eq uipment, small machinery, bal bearing and instruments. More job are to be had for men in heavj insdustries such as automobiles.and The guide ulso advises young job seekers how to handle themselves n interviews. It tnws them to use school placement offices, follow iclp wanted ucis and, register at •>tale employment offices.
