Description: "The survey of commercial job opportunities in the City of McAllen, Texas, was undertaken for the purpose of determining: 1. The numerical importance of training for the different kinds of local commercial positions. 2. The desired age, sex, training, and experience for employees in the different commercial positions of the City. 3. Information to be used in the revision of the commercial curriculum of the McAllen Senior High School and in the vocational guidance of students, and in the placement of graduates. 4. The importance and kinds of office equipment in general use locally. 5. The means by which employers of the City of McAllen, Texas, obtain commercial employees. A local survey seemed desirable in order to understand the local situation and needs in regard to commercial courses offered in the high school, and to revise the commercial curriculum intelligently."--leaf 1.
