A study was conducted for the U.S. Department of Labor by the National Society of Professional Engineers to investigate the potential for and means of conversion of the skills of displaced aerospace and defense technical professionals to other industries or to public service. The study concentrated on areas where new employment opportunities might be created as contrasted to locating existing job openings. Job creation is influenced by a number of actions. Recommendations for specific actions are contained in the appropriate chapters of the report. For the convenience of those charged with responsibility for implementation of the recommendations in order to create employment opportunities, brief summaries of the significant recommendations are collected in this chapter.
