Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 13, No. 4. March 23rd, 1950



Few of us bad any idea what our jobs would be until we reached Sydney. But the university employment agencies had plenty of varied jobs. Most of the women had jobs in hospitals, factories, offices or restaurants, while the men mainly had agricultural jobs, as bean crop inspectors, (no previous experience necessary) fruit pickers, or harvesters Engineering, farming and science students had no difficulty in finding employment in their specialised fields. Those who had jobs for a limited period had no trouble in finding others. I was assured, that if you name the employment you want, the vocational employment people will have no trouble in placing you. What they need most is specific Information.
