The most widely used service of Manpower, is the Job Bank. This is a computerized system of providing applicants with information on job openings and giving employers a choice of qualified workers for their vacancies. Openings are called into the Job Bank every day and placed in a computer. By the next morning these jobs are listed on a printout at all the Manpower branches. Counselors at the offices will take your application, check your qualifications and then refer you to the employer, providing the job is still open.
Employers wishing to list job vacancies should call Job Service at 724-3785. Applicants may screen current job listings at any of the neighborhood branches or in room 210 at Manpower's central office at 500 C St. NW. The central office is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.M. Branch offices are open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Selected job listings are broadcast on radio and television at various times. WRC radio (980-AM) has been broadcasting Job Alerts since 1975 and announcements can be heard throughout the day. WTOP-TV (channel 9) also publicizes job vacancies as part of its daily "Nine In The Morning" program (9 a.m. to 10 a.m.)
Job vacancies also can be heard on Howard University's station, WHUR radio (96.3-FM), which broadcasts announcements twice a day, from 7 to 7:30 a.m. and 9 to 9:30 a.m. WUST-radio (1120-AM) lists job vacancies as part of its Saturday afternoon talk show.Employers wishing to put their job vacancies on the air should so specify when they call the Job Bank.
