Although the campaign is scheduled to last for one month, it is hoped that the effects will be long-lasting; and, while recruitment of new employees is the broad aim, no specific goals have been set for the number of new peo ple to be hired. It is hoped that through simultan eous action a kind of massive exposure can be achieved which will make ev eryone more aware of the industry and the fact that textiles offers steady jobs, the kinds of satisfaction that result from doing worthwhile work, and op portunities for advancement. While aimed at persons of all work ing ages, the heaviest concentration of activity will be targeted at young peo ple in the process of choosing a voca tion. Although the industry normally has openings for people with or without previous training, every effort will be made to encourage young people to remain in school and complete at least their high school education before seek ing full-time employment.
