THE FUNCTION OF THE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT PLACEMENT OFFICER.
RALEIGH, JOHN H.
ONE PERSON IN EACH ENGLISH DEPARTMENT SHOULD ASSUME THE POSITION OF PLACEMENT OFFICER IN ORDER TO PROVIDE INFORMATION AND MORAL SUPPORT TO PH.D.'S LOOKING FOR JOBS. AT BERKELEY THE PLACEMENT OFFICER INTERVIEWS ALL PROSPECTIVE JOB SEEKERS IN SEPTEMBER AND PREPARES A COMPLETE FILE ON EACH STUDENT. ON THE BASIS OF THIS INFORMATION AND A LIST OF THE INDIVIDUAL'S JOB PREFERENCES, THE PLACEMENT OFFICER PREPARES A LETTER WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY A BIOGRAPHY OF THE STUDENT'S WORK AT BERKELEY. HE SENDS THESE LETTERS WHEN HE THINKS A PARTICULAR POSITION MIGHT BE APPROPRIATE FOR A STUDENT OR WHEN A UNIVERSITY EVINCES INTEREST. THE STUDENTS ARE ADVISED NOT TO TAKE JOBS UNTIL AFTER THE MLA DECEMBER MEETING. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED AS PART OF "THE CDE BULLETIN," NUMBER 3, OCTOBER 1964. (BN)
