July 14 – Recruitment Advertisement Day (Japan)

July 14 is Recruitment Advertisement Day/求人広告の日 in Japan.

This is a photograph of an “Outdoor Recruitment Office” from June 1948 (Prange Call No. S191). It is one of many Sun News Agency photographs held in the Prange Collection.

According to the written description, the Kanda Job Recruitment Office had an innovative idea to solicit job ads from people on the street.  Despite their attempts, however, they were unable to collect any new recruitment ads.  Instead, they received many inquiries from people looking for the jobs, indicating the lack of jobs available during the Occupation period.
