~~NN DEN Approved For Release 2000(Q/15 : CA=RD~81O-00773A000TIAE100010006--5 23 May 1975 MEMORANDUM FOR: Deputy Director for Administration SUBJECT : Office of Personnel Report - Week Ending 23 May 1975 1. Refreshing Approach: We were pleased to receive an information copy of a letter from Congressman Barry M. Goldwater, Jr. The letter was sent to an applicant on the West Coast who has been rejected by our recruiter because he lacked the necessary qualifications. After we rejected the applicant, he appealed to Congressman Goldwater's office and the reply from the latter stated that Congressman Goldwater agreed with President Ford that Federal jobs should be offered to people on a strictly competitive basis, not because of pressure being applied from political figures in Government? He further explained to the applicant that he did check with CIA's Personnel Office and found out that "you did not meet their educational requirements, and you were reluctant to relocate in Washington, D. C. " 2. Recruiting by Other Government: Agencies: College placement publications report that the National Security Agency expects to hire 75 electronic and 10 mechanical engineers in the next year; Atomic Energy Commission is increasing its technical intern program and plans to hire 100 chemical, mechanical, nuclear and electrical engineers, with oppor- tunities best for electronic, electrical and mechanical majors. Opportunities will also be good for aerospace, civil, industrial and nuclear engineers, and naval architects. In this regard, the Engineering Manpower Commission has noted that freshman enrollments in engineering may be 15 percent higher this year than last, reversing a long downward trend. The 1973 freshman class in engineering was the smallest since 1952. This suggests that 1977 will be a tough year indeed for recruiting engineers. 3. Handicapped Program: NPIC advises us that they have interviewed our referral to them of a man with cerebral palsy who was sent to us by the Maryland Rehabilitation Center. NP:[C plans to place him in a job concerned with the running of reproduction equipment and other duties.
