Project POWER



What career opportunities are available to the female liberal arts student after graduation? This was the question that the RCW strived to answer through the research done via interviews and surveys for Project POWER (Predication of Women's Entry-Level Requirements). The objectives of the project were to "probe from both public and private corporations the specific degree requirements for entry-level jobs in each of the individual departments of every firm contacted, and as a corollary to job prerequisites, the identification of the range of positions available to persons with a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree."
