summary
Men, Women, and Jobs was first published in 1936. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

Basing their recommendations on reliable tests of vocational aptitudes, the authors point the way to better vocational guidance and re-education, and to their use as weapons against unemployment. This is the story of a five-year investigation conducted as part of the work of the Employment Stabilization Research Institute of the University of Minnesota. The Institute’s Committee on Individual Diagnosis and Training (including experts in the fields of psychology, sociology, medicine, and economics) interviewed thousands of persons, and endeavored to discover why some were employed and others were not, and to devise means for the retraining and improved adjustment of those who were unemployed. This non-technical report includes scores of case histories and describes the tests used to determine whether persons had been doing the kind of work for which they were fitted by nature and training.
