KIRKUS REVIEW

The authors do not spend much time in the kitchen coaxing and assuaging guilt as did Mrs. Cotton (Case for the Working Mother p. 220, 1965 but plunge immediately into the field of Job preparation, and opportunities. The authors know whereof they speak, having officiated as administrators of a well known New York employment agency, and their estimate of Job opportunities for the mature woman in a large metropolitan area, particularly New York is probably hot off the press. Beginning with sound advice as to how to prePare for interview and tests, the authors take on educational preparation, with specifics as to the latest programs for mothers going back to work, special schools, and institutes which prepare students fora professional career. Office jobs, medical work, insurance, selling and, even home businesses, come under scrutiny. Of particular interest is the section dealing with government work with up to date listing of Jobs available and addresses for further information. Throughout, the author's admonitions to attend to a realistic approach to one's abilities, potentials and opportunities, and to give one's best at all times, have a seasoned Personnel Department ring.
