New Careers in Industry.
Paniagua, Lita
This document briefly surveys innovative approaches to hiring and job training which are being used by a number of industrial firms. The author's premise is that there are as many jobs as there are unemployed, and therefore that the basic problem is undereducation of available manpower rather than a need for the creation of new jobs. Industry-sponsored training programs are planned for existing job needs; some government-sponsored programs have become dead ends because they were planned on the expectation of development of new types of jobs before the programs were completed, and the expectation was never realized. Reference is made to training programs run by Western Electric, Wellington Printing Industries, Dupont Company, Polaroid Corporation, Chase Manhattan Bank, Xerox Corporation, and others. (MF)
