Hardest hit by the declining
job market are those with de-
grees in technical fields, the
council said. The economic
squeeze in the aerospace indus-
try alone has caused a reduction
of more than 1,200 job offers,
it said, and an over-all 24 per
cent decrease in all technical
The one bright spot is for ac-
counting majors. The Bethle-
hem, Pa.-based firm said offers
are up 9 per cent for accoun-
tants compared to last year and
have risen 56 per cent over the
last' three years.
Salaries for accountants also
have grown by about 9 per cent
for each of the last three years
while in other fields increases
in salary have been slow-5.6
per cent since June in technical
fields and 7.6 per cent in non-
technical jobs, according to the
survey of 141 colleges.
Indicative of the job squeeze
said university placement di-
rectors contacted. by The Asso-
ciated Press is the heavy stu-
dent demand for interviews with
job recruiters and the increased
selectivity of the recruiters in
Dr. Norman Frisbey, director
of placement services at Penn
State, said "Our recruiting
schedules are overflowing. Stu-
dents are aware of what the
employment situation is across
the country so they're working
harder to find jobs they want.
"They're making more re-
quests for more interviews with
more companies and they're
making them earlier than
usual," he said.
Edward Shaw, placement di-
rector at the University of Cali-
fornia at Los Angeles, said job
offers are down 20? per cent
"with engineering and science
students with master's degrees
bearing the brunt of it,"
"Whereas in the past these
students have had perhaps three
or four jobs to choose from,
now they're getting only one-
companies like Boeing and Lock-
heed just aren't interviewing as
many as before," he said. "After
all, their engineers with years
of experience are having a tough
time with layoffs."
At Northwestern University in
Evanston, Ill., Dr. Frank Endi-
cott said, "There appears to be
a reluctance to make firm of-
fers." He said about 10 per cent
of the recruiters had canceled
At the university's Urbana
campus, Gerald W. Peck said
the number of recruiters con-
tacting the placement office has
been stable "but I get the im-
pression their needs won't be as
