The nature of automated jobs and their educational and training requirements by Inc Human Sciences Research( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Objective information concerning the impact of automation on educational and training requirements was obtained for 132 employees engaged in electron tube, computer, and steel manufacturing processes through management questionnaire responses, analysis of job functions, and employer interviews before and after the introduction of automation. The machine feeding and tending jobs, low functional level jobs, that emerge in continuous materials processing and automatic inspection, required the same or less education than the hand assembling or testing jobs they replaced. The machine processes which involve set up, operation, and minor maintenance, high functional level jobs, required significantly higher education than hand assembly or operation of single purpose machines. High functional level jobs involving major responsibility for the set up, operation, and product quality of automated machines having self-adjusting electronic features had an increased orientation to data and less direct contact with things and required training of a technical nature in addition to broad job experience. Jobs in automated situations, other than the machine feeding and tending jobs, were considered more interesting and challenging, but also more tension producing, due to the higher responsibility associated with them.

The job hunt : job-seeking behavior of unemployed workers in a local economy by W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to examine the role of social-psychological factors in the job-seeking experiences of unemployed workers. A sample of more than 450 blue collar workers and nearly 80 white collar workers selected from the files of the state employment service of erie, pennsylvania, was interviewed. Once employed, 62 percent of the male and 20 percent of the female blue collar workers started to look for a new job within one week. Workers expecting a call-back were less likely to seek a job than those not expecting to be called back to work. Friends, relatives, and other workers were the major source of job-leads, with direct company application second. Unemployed female white collar workers, started their job hunt sooner than female blue collar workers, and relied more frequently on private employment agencies. While a healthy economy is obviously the basic condition for the success of the job-seeker, and he must have the proper skills and education, his behavior is heavily influenced by his achievement motivation, his achievement values, and his job-interview anxiety. Workers who used the "wide ranging" approach in selecting companies at which to apply, and who tried to get jobs "really different" from their usual area, were more successful in finding employment.

Academic labor markets by David G Brown( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study attempted to identify, describe, and evaluate the current procedures by which college jobs are found and filled, and to understand the structure of the academic labor market and the activities of nearly 2,500 placement agencies. Questionnaires were mailed to 10,312 persons, over one-third of all newly appointed college teachers, who represented all disciplines, all regions of the country, all academic ranks, and all sizes of institutions. Over 70 percent returned usable questionnaires. Some of the conclusions were--(1) about one-sixth of all college faculty members are "freshmen or transfers," (2) out of 10 vacancies, four and a half occur from expansion, two and a half from professors switching colleges, two from persons leaving the teaching profession, and one by professors going on leave, (3) ten newly hired college teachers will include four graduate students, three professors changing institutions, one primary or secondary teacher, one business or government employee and one from other experience, (4) the average full professor switched jobs three times and moved 1,350 miles, (5) academic labor markets are national and there is an absence of large salary differentials among regions, (6) the attitude and ability of the institution top management, courses to be taught, teaching load, research facilities, and competency of professional colleagues, salary and future prospects, quality of students, cultural opportunities, academic rank, fringe benefits, climate, and nearness to friends and relatives are variables which determine job choice. Recommendations were--(1) to institute a journal of academic vacancies and an academic register, and (2) for both employers and candidates to approach the academic labor market in a more systematic manner. "Placement services for college teachers" (vt 004 312) is a companion volume. (Mm)

Placement services for college teachers by David G Brown( Book )

2 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The various intermediaries that are operating in the academic market are identified and the services they offer are explained. Individual interviews were held with directors of 15 placement agencies and information was secured on an additional 25 through correspondence. The academic placement services consist of--(1) college placement officers, (2) graduate school departments, (3) employer-oriented placement services, (4) public employment services, (5) private employment agencies, (6) disciplinary professional associations, and (7) other placement services such as cooperative teacher's bureau and the american association of university women. There is a general realization that the traditions of informal placement are becoming less viable. Recruitment must be aggressive, just as job seeking must be extensive. There are more than 2,500 artificial market intermediaries operating in the academic labor market. Placement services accounted for 22 percent of all the jobs found in 1964-65 and another 19 percent secured jobs by writing blind letters of application to potential employers. Channels of communications in the academic labor market are a loosely knit superstructure, and there is unnecessary duplication of effort. Many of the placement services are too small to be efficient. There is a great need for more consolidation and cooperation among existing placement organizations. This is a companion volume to "academic labor markets" (vt 004 313). (mm)
