KIRKUS REVIEW

A wide-ranging prospectus of available employment opportunities for the woman who would increase her activities as well as implement her income (a motivation for only about 25% of the women who work). Fully aware that in the 10 or 15 years of enforced domesticity, a woman becomes a ""discontinuity problem"", Cooper advises on courses to take which will refresh or widen her capabilities. The main part-time job markets are secretarial, sales, teaching, nursing, or in the library or medically associated fields. How to get a job (agencies, advertising, on to the resume and interview), and once secured synchronize it with your homework; temporary help services; direct sailing; work which can be done from the home (handicrafts, sewing, foods, writing, etc.), opportunities for the handicapped, etc., etc., -- all these recommendations are given along with extensive information on further available information, services which help in guidance or placement. Prospective employers will also find a good deal of advice on the use of part time help as an efficient and economic practice. Should be a readymade and virtually untouched market here.
