Houston Area Survey of Employment Trends for College Graduates.
Somers, Coralie; Small, David
The actual and projected level of demand in the employment of college graduates in the Houston, Texas, area was surveyed. Responses from 74 employers provided information on methods for recruiting college graduates and hiring levels for 13 occupational groups, including advertising, architecture, banking, computer software, construction, education, and manufacturing. Data are provided on the frequency of use of 12 recruiting methods, including career fairs, employment agencies, on-campus recruitment, and want-ads. The actual and projected number of hires and percent change from 1981-1982 to 1982-1983 are also reported. A projected decrease of 19 percent in the employment of entry-level college graduates for all employers in 1983-1984 was found, along with an actual 30 percent decrease in employment of this group for 1981-1982 to 1982-1983. Campus recruitment was the most frequently used recruitment method for employers in the fields of public accounting, oil, manufacturing, and oil field service and equipment. Want-ads were also mentioned as a prime source in the categories of manufacturing, architecture/engineering, and oil field service and equipment. The field of education showed more variety in the use of recruitment methods. (SW)
