JOB HORIZONS FOR COLLEGE WOMEN.
BARSKY, LILLIAN; TERLIN, ROSE
DETAILED INFORMATION IS PROVIDED ON A VARIETY OF PROFESSIONS FOR WOMEN. EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS, JOB OPPORTUNITIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES, ESTIMATED SALARIES, AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR ADVANCEMENT ARE DISCUSSED IN SUCH OCCUPATIONS AS ACCOUNTANT, HOME ECONOMIST, ENGINEER, OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST, NURSE, SCIENTIST, REAL ESTATE AGENT AND BROKER, STATISTICIAN, AND MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIST. WOMEN ARE WORKING IN INCREASING NUMBERS BECAUSE OF ECONOMIC NECESSITY OR FOR THEIR OWN PERSONAL SATISFACTION. THEY EARN THEIR HIGHEST INCOMES IN OCCUPATIONS REQUIRING ABOVE AVERAGE EDUCATIONAL PREPARATION, AND IN FIELDS WITH SMALLER NUMBERS OF WOMEN. MOST PROFESSIONAL WORKERS ARE EMPLOYED BY EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, PRIVATE INDUSTRY, AND NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. THE IMPORTANCE OF CONTINUING EDUCATION IS STRESSED, AS A GRADUATE DEGREE BECOMES INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT FOR PROFESSIONAL ADVANCEMENT. SOURCES OF FELLOWSHIPS AND LOANS ARE LISTED. TABLES AND CHARTS SHOW DATA ON DEGREES EARNED, OCCUPATIONS, AND EDUCATIONAL LEVELS OF WORKING WOMEN.
