As Commencement and summer
vacation approach, coeds becorne
concerned with securing perman-
ent and temporary employment.
A proper method of conducting
such a campaign includes interest
and enthusiasm in the work ahead.
When selecting firms at which an
application will be made, one
should not be afraid to use "con-
tacts," because friends and rela-
tives can be very helpful in re-
commending one for a position.
* * *
ONE MAY also apply at an em-
ployment agency as these estab-
lishments usually have long list-
ings of potential employers. News-
paper advertisements offer many
opportunities, as well as the Bur-
eau of Appointments in the Ad-
The more firms applied to the
better the chance is of securing
the desired position. When the
list of companies is complete,
one should find the name of the
personnel director or preferably
the department head to whom
the application will be made.
Letters of application are pro-
bably the most important part of
getting a job. One can write in
an individual style because it is
not necessary to follow well-known

SOME EMPLOYERS advise
never asking for the job in a letter.
It is better, they say, to request
an interview, giving the employer
a choice of time and date.
All ability and experience
should be listed specifically, A
neatly typewritten letter never
fails to make a good impression
Ion the reader.
Instead of including statistics
and qualifications in the body of
the letter, a data sheet can be
used because it is easier to pick

IT IS recommended that the
coed take a copy of the data sheet
which was included in her letter
so that the employer can be re-
minded of this information.
During the interview an alert,
straightforward manner is ad-
visable. Employers prefer the 4
interview to be a two-way pro-
cess, and usually encourage the
applicant to ask questions, be-
cause it indicates a genuine in-
terest in the job.
The employee should be clear
as to the duties, in order to decide
whether the job is one she will be
capable of undertaking and en-
joying. When going into the in-
terview, she should have some idea
of the prevailing rates in the field
so that the salary can be discussed
When a job is not taken, it is
a good idea to write the employ-
er a note thanking him for the
interview in order to be remember-
ed favorably. If the job is secur-
ed, however, one should live up
to the employer's expectations and
learn the work so well as to be-

Other devices for regulating
the sun's effects are the reflec-

glasses, cotton pads, reflectors

commercial plastic cup-eye-

Bathing caps are used to keep

women's accessory manufacturers
has brought out a puckered nylon
cap which the girls use both at

Fidler, '56, an Alice Lloyd resi-

A little more informative, Mar-

of some of the better suntan 10-
tiohs, although she considered salt
water the best thing to use.
Miss Schwartz, who spent her
Christmas vacation in Florida,
is adding to the tan she received
then. "I was the first one on the
beach at nine, and the last one to
leave when the sun went down.
Right now I'm keeping up on my
tan and down on my studies."
A word to the other easily-tan-
