Employment Prospects for English and Foreign Language Graduates.
Levy, Robert A.
The complex problems confronting English and foreign language departments involve, among other things, student enrollments, budgetary shortfalls, lessened job opportunities for graduates, increased cries for accountability, and external intrusions into intradepartmental business. One area over which we have considerable control in the preparation of students for suitable employment after graduation. In assessing the magnitude of this problem, three aspects must be considered: present prospects for students graduating now who face a very competitive job market, prospects for students now beginning college study who will graduate in 1979-1980, and long-range employment trends which are likely to obtain through the remainder of this century.
