How about a CoREER
A s a student, you've doubtless asked yourself many
times what you ought to do to help win this war. What can you
study that will be of practical assistance?
The Retail Bureau at the University of Pittsburgh is offering
a new opportunity to college upperclassmen to be trained for a
successful career in retailing while gaining actual working expe-
rience at a steady weekly salary. You will receive regular under-
graduate credit for your work at the Bureau, you'll earn a
weekly income in a Pittsburgh department store, you'll be
making a definite contribution to civilian wartime morale-at
the same time piling up experience toward a career.
Pitt's Retail Bureau came into being during World War I
to help retailers replace executives and junior executives lost
to the armed forces and government services. In this war, we're
bringing 24 years of successful store service to the problem of
training new people. And we believe opportunities in retailing
have never been greater than they are right now.
Application blanks will be furnished on request.
