finding a job after graduation? Now
there’s a new campus service that can
put your resume in the hands of over
10,000 employers both here and
Career Placement Registry is the new
service’s name and it is being introduc
ed this semester on over 1,200 college
and university campuses across the
Career Placement Registry gives
students the opportunity to record
their personal and academic credentials
in an international direct-access
database. Potential employers are able
to search the on-line system for any or
all of the following p,-jspective
employee criteria: college, degree, ma
jor/minor, grades, occupational and
geographical preference, citizenship
status, relevant experience, language
proficiency, and special skills.
The data students enter into the CPR

panies in 44 countries currently use
Dialog for information retrieval. CPR
enables these employers to match the
best qualified candidate to any job

example, may easily be screened by
personnel directors for trainee pro

For a fee of $8.00, students may
enter the CPR data base for a period of
six months. All data entered into the
computer will be returned to the stu

work force. This will allow all in
dividuals to enter their college creden
tials, work experience, and desires for
employment. It will further enable pre
sent students to continue and up-date
their CPR entry after graduation for as
long as they desiie.
