Frequently Young people fail to secure employment for two reasons first they have no definite objective in mind. And second j they do not present their expert enc and qualifications to the Best advantage. Or is very difficult for an employer to become enthused about a y o to n g Many a prospects when he is Uncertain about what he wants to do. On the other hand. If the applicant has studied Salesman ship. And during i summer vacations has clerked in a store or House canvassing. Zinc and is definite in his desires to get into sales work the employer obtains a much More favourable impression the Young Man who sits across tile desk from you and in an eager and Earnest manner endear properly filling out the application form. The application form is an invitation to the prospective employee to sell himself to the employer. Of he is careless about any information regal Ding his education. Business experience Etche handicaps himself by making an unsatisfactory first impression. Carelessness in spelling grammar and clarity Are often present in the written application of those who do not get jobs Many employers request a photograph of the applicant to be attached to the written application. Here again the Job applicant often does himself an injustice. He will Send Only a snapshot or attach a cheap hastily taken picture that oftentimes has Little resemblance and never does Hora Justice. In these Small but nevertheless important ways Loo Many Young men seeking work fail to create the Hest possible impression in these Days of keen Competition for employment.

Teacher allotments will be made in accordance with Money made available id of Mia Averill Enterprise Bureau sir Walter hotel Raleigh june 12 a the school commission will meet tomorrow tor its regular pre fiscal year session confronted with a big question Mark posed by the european War into which it is not at All improbable the flitted states will have plunged before the end of the next school term. Before the commission will be the always acute problem of fixing a salary scale for next year and this time the problem will he complicated by the unknown Factor of the wars effect on the states Revenue. Secretary Lloyd Griffin said today that the commission will Likely go ahead with its salary actions strictly on the basis of the funds appropriated by the 1939 general Assembly. These funds provide an increase of $250,000 for teachers salaries Over the amount allocated for the school year just ended. Griffin pointed out that he cannot. Of course speak for the commission but indicated that the teachers allotments will be made exactly in accordance with the amount of Money made available by the Assembly. In the event that revenues should he hard hit by the War. Then a new problem would he before the commission to solve. The chairman said he has no doubt that a interested parties will appear before the commission tomorrow in an Effort to have the teachers Money divided according to their ideas. Rat i Kar ago a year ago there was quite a i Battle Over distribution with negroes a it King that the a differential Quot against them lie reduced with the More experienced teachers seeking added experience increments and county superintendents clamouring for a bigger share r of the pie something of the same sort is j Likely to happen this year but no j t Eal difficulty is expected in work Jing out a plan for distribution of the extra Quarter million dollars. Griffin Aid there will be few. If any accurate and final figures on last school year available when j the commission meets. In fait he added. It will Likely he several weeks yet before anything other i than purely tentative figures will be read.

The Secretary will however be Able to report to the commission that the operations of the year left the financial statement a in the Black a Revenue having proved adequate to meet budget estimates in practically All items. This in View of the unusually hard Winter. Is something to be proud of Griffin said. Never Given to Over statement Griffin said that from the economic standpoint the school year just passed was a fairly satisfactory Quot in practically every respect.

The intense heat and Moke overcame several firemen they prevented the fire from lipreading to Large lumber it i by and the liver Dock. Ity to do a Given Job arouses a definite interest and makes the most favourable impression. While the Young Man who is indecisive and not certain whether he wants to do a certain thing creates an unfavourable impression on the employer. Personal appearance conduct and poise Are important Factor in evaluating applicants for jobs. Carelessness in appearance at the time of the interview indicates a Lack of respect for the Job in question and creates an impression of indifference.

Experience in his chosen Field has1 a a a distinct advantage Over those who use this time ouly As a vacation period. Some Young men do not get jobs because they give one the impression they Are just shopping around rather than trying to find the Type of business in which they can build a career. For example a Young Man May be too much concerned about Small initial differences in Start ing salary. He inquires about such things As retirement plans rather than endeavouring to impress upon the employer that he alas the industriousness and the capacity for lit re work that is so necessary for future Success.
