Careers for Women in the Seventies.
Employment Standards Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Women's Bureau.
This guide to career opportunities is directed to women. It presents descriptions, the current status, and the projected demand for workers in various occupations in the following areas: professional and technical workers, managers and administrators, skilled trades, clerical workers, sales workers and service workers. Figures provided for occupations in these areas give the total employment as of 1970, the percentage of the total that are women, and the average annual openings to 1980. A concluding section states that careers for women should not be any different from careers for men and that women's ability to capitalize on the growth occupation demands will depend on several factors: (1) women need better career planning and counseling; (2) some women must change their career aspirations from the usual "women's" occupations to nontraditional, and usually better-paid, occupations; (3) women must fully utilize the sources of legal protection and assistance against discrimination that are available to them; and (4) employer attitudes regarding women's roles and desire to work must be changed. References are provided. (KM)
