18 september 1968 & oil company ad in hilltop
#OTD-ish 18 September 2018 Howard University students saw this ad for the Atlantic Richfield company in the Hilltop. It states:
“They do exciting things like mining oil instead of pumping it. Working on air pollution. Making electricity from the atom. Isn’t that the kind of company you want to work for?”
Students were encouraged to talk with the interviewer who would be on campus the following week.
Your comments are welcome below. Do you remember seeing this ad? How did students feel about this kind of recruitment on campus? Did you meet with the Atlantic Richfield interviewer? In what building did it take place? Do you recognize the model? You may comment privately here.
