BAB60N BABSON PARK, Fla., Jan. 8 Many letters have come to me from young men and women all over the country asking where the best job opportunities will be found in the next few years. Several hundred years B. C. the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, said, “There is nothing more perma nent than change’’. His philosophy still holds good — especially in the world of work. Planning a wise vocational choice is, in some ways, like duck hunting. If you shoot where the bird is at any given moment, you may waste your am munition.. Job opportunities are al ways in more or less of a flux due to such factors as (1) wars, (2) boom periods, (3) depressions, (4) new inventions, (5) changes in peo ples wants and desires. Probably the best way to predict tiie job opportunities of tomorrow is by looking at the trends of yesterday. For example, accord ing to the U. S. Bureau of Census, 33 out of every 100 gainfully em ployed in 1910 were in agricultrual pursuits. Today only 18 out of 100 are so employed. This casualty, lor the most part, has been due to technological development. Thirty years from now small farms will be used only for inflation hedges or sustenance purposes. Food is des tined to be grown on great farms as surely as shoes are made in great factories. Another illustration: professional workers such as lawyers, engi neers, tgachers and dentists in creased from 4 per 100 in 1910 to 8 per 100 today. While opportunities for professionel workers will con tinue to expand, it is the belief of experts that there will not be enough jobs for all of the young people who wish to enter these fields. My advice is, therefore, that unless you have a vital in terest in and an unusual aptitude for the professions, you had better consider other vocations where there will be greater opportunities. Since 1920 manufacturing and mechanical industries have employ ed more workers than any other vocational groups. A figure of over 30 out of every 100 has been reach ed. I visualize that during the next thirty years America, and even Eastern Europe and Asia, are headed for a trial of nearly com pletely mechanized civilization. Since, then, the essentials of life will be taken care of by machine, the greatest vocational opportuni ties may be for machine builders, machine repairers, machine tend ers and technologists. Good Opportunities These must complement the manufacturing and mechanical industries. People need manufac tured goods. They have gone long without them. Someone must trans port these goods from the factory, and someone must distribute them to the consumer. The number of workers involved in such pursuits has more than doubled since 1870 and will, no doubt, continue to in crease in the years ahead. For young women the clerical field will probably continue to of-1 fer the best opportunities. The num ber of clerical workers more than I doubled from 1910-1945. These jobs will continue strong in order to keep up with the needs of business and industrial, transportation and distributive activities. But as wage increases, young women must do more and better work. “Any girl’* cannot get jobs much long er. Advice to Job Hunters It is impossible to have a great war without “paying the piper”. Sooner or later we are bound to witness a business depression. Therefore, whether you be labor er, operator, craftsman, salesman, administrator, or what, look for work with (a) a company whose earnings fluctuate a minimum be tween good times and bad times. A toilet tissue manufacturer would qualify, while a steel company would not. Or (b) work for a com pany which furnishes a necessity and whose business holds up dur ing a depression. A fire insurance company would qualify, while a hotel would not. Or (c) work for a growing industry such as chemical companies. Or (d) work for a con cern that can quickly mark up prices in case of inflation. Chain stores would quality; railroads would not.
