Annis, William H.; Floyd, Richard G., Jr.
To develop an instrument which would yield the educational needs of those desiring entry-level employment in organized recreation and supportive enterprises and to determine employment opportunities, data were collected through personal interviews with 59 employers in nine outdoor recreation enterprises and 50 employers in six supportive enterprises. The study was limited to two outdoor recreation areas in new Hampshire which served the general public and also offered employment. Supportive enterprises included eating and sleeping accomodations, service stations, sports shops, and stores in the two areas. An instrument was developed which could adequately collect data on the outdoor recreation complex with its supportive enterprises. Some findings were: (1) The recreation complex offers a variety of full-time, part-time, and seasonal employment, (2) Employment opportunities for the unskilled worker are greater during the summer, (3) Courses at secondary, postsecondary, and adult levels are needed in this area, and (4) The majority of job titles identified were below the managerial level with on-the-job training as the only method available to train new employees.
