A high level of stable employment is a goal in every community.
It means steady employment for ex-service men and women, handi-
capped veterans and non-veterans, older workers, youths, and other
persons seeking employment. It means increased production of goods
and services, better markets, and savings in unemployment insurance
costs. It adds up to better living conditions and greater community
advantages for everyone.
To help achieve this goal, the Employment Service offers a 6-Point
The program is designed to facilitate employment and to promote
employment stability in the community. It is designed to place
workers (including disabled veterans and other handicapped per-
sons), in jobs which use their highest skills, training, and experience.
It supplies facts about employment to workers, employers, and com-
munity agencies. It helps the local community to plan employment
programs for the future.
Your Employment Service and its 6-Point Program-what they are
and what they mean to the worker, the employer, and the com-
munity-are described briefly in the following pages.
THE EMPLOYMENT SERVICE?
The local offices of your State Employment Service are part of the
nation-wide system of employment offices affiliated with the United
States Employment Service under the Wagner-Peyser Act of 1933.
Your local office of the Employment Service is an effective employ-
ment exchange. It provides a central clearing house in the local
labor market-it brings the worker and employer together.
The local office provides a placement service which reduces waste
in job hunting and labor recruiting.
Each local office operates on a 6-point program adapted to meet
the varying needs of local communities.
The nation-wide system of employment exchanges includes 1,800
local offices and more than 2,000 part-time offices.
The Veterans' Employment Service is an integral part of the Federal-
State Employment Service.
Whether you are a worker or an employer, it is your Employment
i 1 '!
Geared to the needs of job seekers, employers, and the community,
the 6-point program provides job placement services for veterans and
other job seekers in all the different skills in industry, trades, and
services. It provides employment counseling as needed.
The 6-Point Program supplies employment market information to
job seekers, employers, and the public as well as personnel manage-
ment assistance to employers and labor
organizations. It cooperates with civic
groups in community employment and
The 6-Point Program is the Employment
Service in action.
PLACEMENT OF THE JOB-SEEKER
Hit and miss job hunting is wasteful. The Employ-
ment Service provides a means to eliminate this waste.
Its staff is trained professionally in matching job
qualifications against job requirements.
An employer's job order placed with the local office
provides the link between him and the greatest number of
qualified job seekers. When demand for labor cannot
be met locally, the Employment Service actively recruits
workers outside the community.
The resources of all offices within the State and those
of all other States are at the call of local employers and
By using the local office of their State Employ-
ment Service, employers can do highly selective
hiring without having to interview large num-
bers of job applicants for each job opening.
SPECIAL SERVICES TO VETERANS
All facilities of the Employment Service are available
to supply special services to veterans. Veterans Em-
ployment Representatives are stationed in all State and
local offices. The Veterans Employment Service works
actively to expand and develop job opportunities for
The Employment Service gives special attention to
meeting the job needs of diabed veterans.
Carefully developed methods are used to

are qualified, with emphasis on ability rather
AND SELECTIVE PLACEMENT
Job seekers with special employment problems are
given employment counseling to assist them in making
an occupational choice and developing a sound voca-
tional plan. Veterans, youths, the handicapped, and
older workers displaced by industrial or economic
changes are those most often needing this assistance.
A special program is maintained to assist disabled
veterans to find satisfactory employment.
Employment Service counselors help the worker to:
a. Consider his own employment aptitudes, experience,
and what he would like to do in light of prospective
b. Determine the training required to enter an appro-
priate field of work.
c. Decide what plan to follow in getting the
job he wants.
Put the plan into effect.
LABOR MARKET INFORMATION
The Employment Service collects, analyzes, and dis-
tributes current employment information, showing trends
in labor supply and demand and current and prospective
labor market conditions.
Labor market information, the local weather vane on
employment conditions, guides: (a) job seekers who want
to know what kind of jobs are available and where they
are; (b) employers who want to know the available num-
bers and types of workers; and (c) local civic groups
engaged in employment and industrial planning.

IFe COMMUNITY GROUPS
The local office of your State Employment Service is a
community institution-the community employment cen-
ter. It not only brings the worker and the employer
together but is of value to the entire community in many
other ways. Some of the advantages grow out of
occupational adjustment of workers and personnel as-
sistance to employers. Others grow out of the flow of
Employment Service labor market reports showing local
employment trends and labor requirements. These
reports are useful in facilitating the introduction of new
industries or in the training of workers to meet expand-
ing requirements of local industries, trades, and services.
The Employment Service works
with civic planning committees, schools
and other agencies, and employer
and labor organizations in the dove-
tailing of employment and in meeting
seasonal demand for workers. The
method of community cooperation
varies. In some communities ad-
visory committees, consisting of man-
agement, labor, and public members,
are set up specifically to assist the

A NATION-WIDE JOB SERVICE
The 1,800 local offices of the Employment Service are more than labor exchanges
serving the employment needs of workers and employers in their own communities.
These local employment centers are also links in a nation-wide system of employment
offices serving the States and the Nation.
Workers who cannot find local jobs can get information on jobs throughout the State.
If jobs are unavailable within the State, the search is broadened to neighboring States,
and finally the nation-wide system goes into action.
The action of the local offices in securing employment for scientific, executive, and
professional personnel is supplemented by the National Clearing Houe, which
daily is receiving employer orders and job applications from all over the country.
Qualified applicants and employers are brought together quickly and efficiently.
The service is free to both employers and workers. It is designed to promote high
levels of stable employment by promptly bringing employers and job seekers together.
