your personal calendar carefully
so time can be found for this

take a dim view of heavy cutting

course important to avoid cut-

to see you
Your major, whatever it is, makes you
a candidate for a career with IBM.
Watch for interview dates in the Michigan
Daily and sign up for an appointment at
your placement office-even if you're headed
for graduate school or military service.

school, as well as that of each
candidate, is involved in the
placement process, the Placement
Office has a few hard and fast
rules which must be followed by
those using this service:
When traveling at company ex-
pense, bill the company only for
necessary and reasonable ex-
penses actually incurred in mak-
ing the trip. If more than one
company is visited on the same
trip, the expenses can usually be
pro-rated. If there is any doubt
it is best to clear this with the
companies in advance.
Take as much time as required
to decide which job offer to ac-
cept. However, once the decision
is made, it is final. Reneging on
an accepted job offer is consider-
ed extremely unethical and will
lead to permanent loss of future
placement privileges with this
school. If, under extreme circum-
stances, you feel you cannot live
with the job decision you have
made, please arrange a personal
interview with the Director of
Placement to discuss the situa-
tion.
Once you have made a job de-
cision, let that company know
promptly so it can plan accord-
ingly. Also, promptly inform all
other companies who have out-
standing job offers to you, be-
cause they may be withholding
offers from other desirable can-
didates until they have heard
definitely from you.
Under no circumstances are
you permitted to continue inter-
viewing companies through the
Placement Office after you have
made your job decision.

IS WHERE IT'S HAPPENING:

Why is IBM interested in so many different
people?
The basic reason is growth. Information
processing is the fastest growing, fastest
changing major industry in the world. Peo-
ple at IBM are helping to solve problems in
widely diverse areas, such as government,
law, education, medicine, science, the hu-
manities. We need people with almost every
kind of background. That's why we want to
talk with you.
Whatever your major, you can do a lot of

good things at IBM. Change the world
(maybe). Make money (certainly). Con-
tinue your education (through our Tuition
Refund Program, for example). And have
a wide choice of places to work (over 300
locations throughout the United States).
We'll be on campus to interview for careers
in Marketing, Computer Applications, Pro-
gramming, Research and Development,
Manufacturing, and Finance and Adminis-
tration. Come see us.
