The Voluntary Investment Plan: The amount invested in the VI will probably pass the seven million dollar mark today. We are about eight thousand dollars short of that mark as of this writing, and the seventy thousand in con- tributions today will see the plan move to a new record. 3. Single Ceiling: Work continued on implementation of the single ceiling and placing positions on the Staffing Complements. We hope to have all completed by 13 June. 4. Summer Interns: Forty-six Summer Interns remain in the program. All but four are cleared. Twenty-three have reported for duty. Twelve are entering on duty on Monday, 9 June, with the remaining 11 reporting on 16 June. 5. Co-op Re uirements: Offices employing Co-op students have been requested to furnish the Coordinator with their requirements for the second half of FY 1976. 6. Summer-Only Employees: We have entered on duty 162 Summer-Only employees. 7. NSA Co-op: The NSA Co-op Coordinator called our Co-op people on 3 June to see if we were experiencing, as NSA is, higher security and medical reject rates among Co-op applicants. NSA is particularly concerned about Co-ops from the University of Akron. We subsequently checked and found that all five of our Co-ops from Akron had recently been in for processing. While none are yet cleared, neither do any of them have security ok medical holds. 8. Blood Donor Day: "Blood Day" on 3 June was highly successfu . A total of 186 pints was donated -- 41 more than for the same date last year. A reminder about Blood Day has been placed on the Bulletin Board on the day before and on donation day. This has apparently helped the program. Approved For Release 2000/081'~ ~'C31,P8A773A000100010004-7 CONF1DLN I IAL Approved For Release 2000/08/15: CIA-RDP80-007 ZA000100010004-7 9.

Neither of these expectations material- ized, however. At all degree levels, openings for engineers dropped 20%, while the petroleum industry showed only a 4% increase over last year in contrast to a 33% increase anticipated earlier in the season. CPC noted, however, that the engineer- ing decrease followed three successive years of increases: 7% in 1971-72, 32% in 1972-73, and 1.4% in 1973-74. By degree level, the largest drop was experienced at the doctoral level -- 20%, although bachelor's and master's candidates fared little better. The bachelor's decline was 18% and the master's decrease was 17%. No categories escaped the downturn. The least affected were the "sciences, math, and other technical" category at the bachelor's level -- down 7%; engineering at the doctoral level -- down 10%; and business administration at the master's level -- down 11%. Engineering, normally the most heavily recruited cate- gory, declined 20% at the bachelor's level and 23% at the master's level. Business, another top category, dropped 28% at the bachelor's level. The "other non-technical" category at the bachelor's level, which includes humanities and social sciences, together with other liberal arts candidates, dropped 9% in the number of hires. This does not mean, however, that the prospects for these candidates were relatively better than for engineer- ing and business majors, CPC noted. This year's drop was on top of a 45% decrease in 1970-71 and almost no subsequent improvement in the intervening years. Additionally, 36% of the hires in the "other non-technical" category were reported by the federal government, with the majority coming from the competitive federal career examination eligibility lists which include recent as well as new graduates. By types of employers, the only categories on the plus side, besides the petroleum industry with its 4% increase, were local and state government agencies -- up 18%, and non- profit and educational institutions (non-teaching positions) -- up_ 7%. The volume of hires in both these categories, however, was low. Approved For Release 2000/08/15: CIA-RDP80-00,7.73A000100010004-7 'Approved For Release000/08/15: CIA-RDP80-00773A@00100010004-7 Page 2 Even such stable employers as public accounting firms, metals, and chemicals/drugs, all of which had anticipated in- creased hiring this year, were part of the downward trend. Public accounting dropped only 5%, but chemicals/drugs and metals declined 21% and 24%, respectively. Reflecting the national economy, the largest decreases in the CPC survey were recorded for the building materials/construction in- dustry and for automotive and mechanical equipment, both down approximately 60%. Judging from their comments, ecmployers do not expect appreciable improvement in hiring until possibly next Spring. Many said there is little necessity to do much recruiting because of an available supply of experienced individuals and recent college graduates, coupled with reduced turnover and internal re-allocation of personnel. Despite all of these factors and the poor economic cli- mate, top students, minorities, and women in high-demand disciplines are expected to continue in a strong competitive position. For the majority of graduates, however, supply is seen as exceeding demand unless the economy improves substan- tially. ########## Approved For Release 2000/08/15: CIA-RDP80-00773A000100010004-7
