Word Processing Career Opportunities.
Wagoner, Kathleen P., Comp.
Word processing, a system for improved communication through the use of skilled personnel, revised procedures, and automated equipment, is creating new jobs and changing traditional ones. This pamphlet, intended for business managers and educators, was created to present information concerning new office structures, job descriptions, and career opportunities for those associated with word processing. Five sets of materials, supplied by different business and service organizations, list organization charts and job descriptions for personnel performing word processing functions. The first set is a general framework for job descriptions supplied by the International Word Processing Association (IWP). The second set of descriptions illustrates the structure and job duties in a large organization having centralized processing systems. Another chart of positions is supplied by the United States Army to illustrate job opportunities in the military. The fourth set of materials presents job descriptions from an organization with a decentralized structure, and the last set provides information concerning some of the new types of positions and career opportunities available in the word processing field.
