MORE COMPETITION CAUSES HIGHER STANDARDS
Job standards tougher for college grads

By MITCH CANTOR
A study recently released by the U.S.
Labor Department concluded that one-
fourth of this year's college graduates
in recent years will be working at jobs
which did not previously require higher
education. University officials,
however, say this school's graduates
will not be hampered by the more
stringent job requirements.

Evart Ardis, Director of University
Career Planning and Placement, said
he is optimistic about University
students and their experiences on the
job market.
"I THINK THE exception to that (the
study) is that our students are very in-
ventive and competitive when they
come out of this University,"Ardis said.

Ardis blamed the change on a higher
overall education for the average
student. "There are increasingly more
college graduates available for the jobs
available," he said.
Grace Oerther, coordinator for
Career Planning and Placement, also
said increased competition is respon-
sible for the alteration. She said many
jobs on today's market, such as
teaching positions, often require doc-
torates where only Master's degrees
were previously required.
ARDIS ADDED requirements for
many jobs have risen in the last several
decades.
"I wouldn't be surprised if we're in
the process of escalating (job
qualifications) again," Ardis said.
Ardis said the University is making

several attempts to help graduates with
career placement.
"WE'RE trying very hard (to help the
students) by making contact with in-
coming freshmen" to be sure they are
"realistic with their career
aspirations," Ardis said.
"We also have a fairly new program
... exploring career possibilities for
Ph.D. types (other than academic
careers)," he said.
Ardis said increasing numbers of jobs
requiring doctorates are opening up in
business and government. "Industry
and government are getting much more
complex, so it takes more education to
keep up with them."
Because of the intense competition in
today's job market Oerther urges
students "to get the highest degree of
education in a field."

Wall near Ren Cen collapses

DETROIT (UPI) - A large portion of
a concrete retaining wall collapsed
during a severe thunderstorm yester-
day at a parking structure under con-
struction adjacent to the riverfront
Renaissance Center.
Police said several persons suffered
minor injuries, but the exact number
and nature of injuries was not im-
mediately known. Winds up to 80 mph
were recorded in the Detroit area at the
time.
THE STRUCTURE is located im-
mediately west of the Renaissance Cen-
ter. It was scheduled to open this fall
and provide an additional 1,233 parking
spaces for patrons of the huge river-
front complex.
Police said there were no workers or
any other persons at the site of the
collapse.

There was no immediate word on
what caused the collapse, but a police
spokesperson said it was definitely
related to the brief storm that swept
through downtown Detroit shortly after
8 p.m.
