examination and personality in-

Preparations for hostess work
can include study in foreign lang-

public speaking, cooking, psy-
chology and human relations.
Nursing is also a good .back-
ground.
After several personal inter-
views, those chosen begin .the
training program lasting from
four to six weeks. In the class-
room, which is a reproduction of

ing, the hostess is put on a six

counts, advancement opportuni-
ties, and rapid salary increases.
"I like this kind of life. It's
colorful and I feel like I am not
getting stale," concluded Miss
Roiz. "It's a challenge."
Banking
"If you enjoy dealing with peo-
ple and want a job that is fun
and interesting, a bank is a won-
derful place to work."
This is the opinion of Jeannette
Edlund of the National Bank of
Detroit. Miss Edlund also stated
that the banking field is a rela-
tively new field for women and
that there is a great demand for
them in this occupation.
Among the many positions open
to women in banking are: super-

visors of credit departments, cou-
pon tellers, librarians, secretaries ( ,
to the officers, analyzers of fi-
nancial statements, personnel in-
terviewers and supervisors of sec- 3,<
retarial training.
Another important field that is
just opening to women in bank-
ing is customer relations. Young
women who have worked as tellers
are being trained to solicit new
accounts for the bank. Miss Ed--
lund said that the competition
for new accounts in banking is
just as great as in industry.
There is also a field for journa-
lists in the area of bank publica-
tions.
Miss Edlund stated that banks;
are . conservative and lag behind
business in placing women in top
positions. However, she felt that
by joining a smaller bank a wo-
man could eventually become an
officer.

trance examination for college
graduates.
Upon passing the examination,
the applicant's name is placed
on the register until a suitable
job comes along-
The examination will be ad-
ministered 'by the Detroit Civil
Service on Jan. 27. However, one
must file an application by Wed-
nesday, Dec. 27.
Statisticians, clerks, secretaries
and administrators are needed to
work within the civil service pro-
gram, thus finding a career work-
ing with the federal government.
Counseling
Two qualities which a good
counselor should have are humil-
ity, or "a spirit of helpfulness,
perhaps even greatfulness" and
common sense, according to Mil-
dred Snell of the employment de-
partment of A & P.
Other qualities listed by Miss
Snell as basic to counselors are
the ability to listen and not ad-
vise, empathy, or the mental
entering into the feelings of
another, objectiveness, and a re-
ferral technique.
Conditions termed "important"
to a good counseling atmosphere
were privacy, attentiveness of the
counselor, lack of interruptions
and diversions and a feeling of
confidence on the part of the
person seeking advice.
"Counseling is a good field for
women," Miss Snell said, but add-,
ed that she did not think it was

growing. She remarked that the
emphasis is now upon training
supervisors in counseling techni-
ques, rather than hiring a spec-
ialized person for the job.
Miss Snell said that beginning
monthly pay in the company she
works for starts at around $350
and gradually may increase to
about $600. She said a beginner
works on the job with employees
to gain a better understanding
of individual job problems.
Insurance
Women can go as far as they
want to in the insurance field
according to Ella B. Lyons of
the E. B. Lyons Insurance Co. of
Detroit.
Miss Lyons said that there are
many women executives in the
general insurance companies and
the field is always open for more.
There is no discrimination against
women officers.
"A college education will never
go amiss," stated Miss Lyons.
Each insurance company has its
own training program for its em-
ployees but a college degree is a
vital element in obtaining a posi-
tion.
Many other positions are open
to women in the insurance field.
Claim work, statistical analysis,
investment work and accounting
are among those available. Sec-
retarial positions to top officers
are also obtainable for qualified
women.
