Looking for a job? Let Mr. Don Ferris help you, circa 1959. Make sure you wear your pressed white shirt and gray slacks when you show up for the interview. :-)

Illinois Department of Labor presents "Jobs In Chicago", with Don Ferris speaking for the Illinois State Employment Service. It aired on WTTW Channel 11. This was one of the first if not the first TV job for Don Ferris. (He was of course a long-time voiceover announcer at both WTTW and WSNS) Includes:

- The Professional Sales & Clerical Office at 73 West Washington Street needs thousands of Christmas workers.

- Large mail-order house needing young men to train as executives for a starting salary of $90 a week.

- Electronics firm on the near-North side looking for an Electrical Engineer, offering salary of $175 a week.

- Loop Construction firm looking for Civil Engineer with a degree in soil mechanics. Salary up to $550 a month.

- Organic Chemist needed - $10,000 a year salary!

- Steel workers not needed as much right now

- North Side Industrial Office at 1608 North Laramie still looking for Cab and Bus Drivers. Cab drivers average $100 a week. Bus Drivers earn $2.12 an hour.

This likely aired on local Chicago TV on Tuesday, December 1st 1959. (23 more shopping days if the day he was speaking was considered already a lost shopping opportunity I guess) (Or do you think Monday, November 30th 1959 is more likely?)
