recreation departments are also
taking applications at this time,
with the deadlines around April
15. Jobs in this department can
include anything from lifeguard
to clerical work.
For students who would
really like to relocate for a few
months, the State of Alaska is
employing students for such
jobs as blazing trails and
working on fire crews.
“The largest input we get
from local employers, has been
agricultural,” said Sue Ford,
youth representative at the
Oregon State Employment
Division in Oregon City.
“There is always demand for
berry pickers, although we
don’t get much response from
college students in that area.”
“We will refer 60 to 100 ap­
plications to the park and
year,but we recieve no feed­
back on how many of those are
picked up. We do know that
highway jobs, which involve
road maintenace and' lan­
dscaping, give previous em­
ployee priority, and will pick up
a few new ones here and there
to fill in the gaps.”

“We always get lots of calls
from people in need of yard
workers,” she said. “If a
student had a lawn mower, he ,
could advertise, and with our
referrals, get a route and do
pretty well.”
Openings for such jobs as
store clerks and restaurant
workers are always “slower”
according to Ford. She at­
tributed the cause of this to
many things, but mentioned
that many employers in these
areas fill the spaces with frien­
ds, employees’ children, and
generally people they already
know, cutting down on the
possibilities for the general
requests for help aré “a little
slow for this time of year,” Ford
emphasised that the em­
ployment climate for summer
‘79 is “hard to foresee.”
“Job placement has been
coming in spurts all year,” she
said. “My feelings are that em­
ployers are nervous about the
state of the economy, and
hesitant about putting on more
people. It is hard to tell,
though. It might pick up. ”
