Job and Getting Ahead By Floyd B. Foster, Vocational Counselor, International Correspondence Schools Advertising What Too Have TaSdl A YOUNG man living in one of the smaller cities recently de cided to insert an advertisement in the daily newspaper' in an effort . to obtain a position. Some of his friends told him he was craxy. Jobs were scarce as ben's teeth. Employ-' ers weren't going to bother to write or telephone prospective employees, even if they had i job open. Within a week the young man had his job, and some of those who had prophesied failure most loudly were wondering why they hadn't thought of the same thing. It's doubtful, though, if they realized the real se cret of his success, for he had used his ad to sell himself and his .serv ices just exactly as a manufacturer of grocery products or automobiles uses advertising to sell his products. Before the young man wrote his ad he sat down and studied his prod uct which in this case was himself and what he cpuld do. Instead of thinking of what a job would mean to him he thought of what he might mean to the man who employed him. Then he used his ad to tell the prospective employer what he had to offer as an employee, and why he would be an asset to the business. In looking for a job no advice is more important than to put your self in the place of an employer. His first thought is, "What can you do? What have you got to sell me for the price I can pay you?" An swer those questions in a fashion which will convince the employer that he is getting a bargain and there is every chance that the job will be yours. MRS. LEGGETT HERE Mrs. J. L.
