In an effort to alleviate large numbers of engineering vacancies and to provide a systematic input of new engineers, a centralized college recruitment program was initiated at the U.S. Army Missile Command at the beginning of Fiscal Year FY 1982. Review of traditional government recruitment procedures and increased demand for research personnel leading to the establishment of the centralized college recruitment program and equal employment opportunity for females are discussed. Recruitment results are compared for the first 3 years of the recruitment program and the 3 years immediately prior to its establishment. The comparison indicates the increased number of female engineers recruited during the 3 years of the centralized program was significant. For purposes of this study, significant increase was defined as doubling the number of female engineers recruited. A discussion of the possibility that the results may have been confounded by factors other than the recruitment intervention is provided. Author
