Student Employment Information Service. A Report to the Board of Directors.
Bradley, John H.
A project to develop a student employment information service under the sponsorship of the Southeast Florida Educational Consortium is described. The project was designed to provide information on: the overall demand by specific major, with 5-year projections; overall supply by specific major; names of specific employers and numbers required, by specific major; and names, addresses, and specific majors of graduating students. To determine the feasibility of the project, a survey was conducted that concentrated on the following majors: business administration, computer specialists, engineers, health professions, and hospitality management, which includes travel/tourism. Information was received from 8 colleges and from about 50 employers. In order to obtain information on health professions, a special questionnaire was administered to 90 hospitals. Analyses are provided on: the supply in the five major areas of study; demand, using figures compiled through the survey and statistics reported by the Florida Occupational Information System; and a comparison of supply and demand. Nine study recommendations are presented, along with a list of responding employers, questionnaires, correspondence, information on consortium operations for 1982-1983, and the names and addresses of graduating students by major.
