College teachers--Supplementary employment
The purpose of this study is threefold: 1. To confirm the hypothesis that the majority of the professors of the College of Business would rather be employed than unemployed during the summer months. 2. To investigate the available positions in the business fields for college professors in the areas of teaching, consulting, and counseling and research. 3. To inquire about professional services in business administration needed by government, industry and labor. A pilot questionnaire survey was given to the professors of the College of Business at Northern Illinois University to obtain an indication of their summer employment plans, employment preferences, educational achievement, and their willingness to travel to summer positions. 1. Of the total respondents, 71.5 per cent of the professors plan to be employed during the summer months of 1964. 2. There is strong indication that teaching is the favored type of summer employment. Consulting and research are the second and third choices. 3. The college of Business at Northern Illinois University boasts a high level of educational achievement, with 57.1 percent of the respondents possessing their final degree. 4. The professors, for the most part, have no objection to traveling to a summer position. Other sources of information and data were libraries; correspondence with our Senators, placement offices of other universities and government agencies; and personal and telephone interviews.
