The last coach to lead UCLA to victory in the Rose Bowl game - or any significant bowl contest, for that matter - still refers to the Bruins as “we” out of habit and affection. Terry Donahue's heart is still with UCLA, and he's an unabashed admirer of Coach Jim Mora and the coaching staff for pointing the team toward sustained success. Donahue, who won Rose Bowl titles after the 1982, 1983 and 1985 seasons, was at the Rose Bowl on Saturday for a ceremony that renamed the press box the Terry Donahue Pavilion.

Amid an aggressive push to bolster its ranks with thousands of new deputies, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department loosened its hiring practices and gave jobs to recruits who in the past would have been rejected, according to a department watchdog report released Thursday. Among those hired were applicants with criminal records, drug and alcohol problems and financial woes. One recruit, for example, had been released from another police agency after using excessive force.

The Irvine Unified School District will consider launching a statewide search to replace former Supt. David E. Brown, who left in October to head a Northern California school district. The search for a new superintendent was put on hold because of the county's fiscal crisis. But Tuesday, school board members will consider hiring Berkeley-based Management Analysis and Planning Associates to conduct an executive search.

City Council members interviewed six recruiting firms Wednesday to select the best one to lead the search for the next city manager. David M. Griffith and Associates of Sacramento caught the council's attention, Eckman said. "They have the most recent and relevant recruitment experience for city managers in comparable California cities," Eckman said. Bids from the six candidates said they would charge from $13,500 to $22,000 to complete the city manager search over 13 to 16 weeks.

A Santa Ana-based recruiting-services company has expanded its "help wanted" television broadcasts to San Francisco and expects to have programs in Boston and in New Haven, Conn., later this year. VideoSearch began broadcasting half-hour segments last year in Orange and Los Angeles counties. The shows feature interviews with executives who describe job openings at their companies. Viewers are then given numbers to call for further information on the jobs listed.

Sixty-four percent of big U.S. companies are unhappy with the reading, writing and reasoning abilities of high school graduates entering the work force, a poll of business executives said. The National Alliance of Business survey found that 72% of executives also thought that new employees' math skills had worsened the past five years. Sixty-five percent said reading skills had decreased over the same period. Alliance President William Kolberg said the poll results should worry everyone.

Pamela Wallace is a 44-year-old single mother who for years worked full time in the office of a major recording studio. She had benefits, made enough money to support her family and to maintain a nice apartment in North Hollywood. But last year Wallace fell on hard times. She had severe health problems that required several operations, and her mother and sister died during that time.

In a decision that threatens hundreds of affirmative action programs statewide, the California Supreme Court ruled Thursday that government agencies can no longer limit recruitment efforts to women and minorities. The ruling was the court's first on the scope of Proposition 209, the 1996 initiative that banned racial and gender preferences by government agencies.

It made little difference Thursday to job recruiter Kristy Littauer that her next batch of potential employees all had something in common: a criminal record. With a job market hungry for labor and a record low unemployment rate nationwide, she said, prisons often are an untapped source for enthusiastic workers. "The hardest thing these days for an employer is to find someone who's reliable and really wants to work," said Littauer, branch manager for a job placement firm.

When jobs go begging, potential employees can shop around, and that's what they did Wednesday at UC Irvine's annual job exposition.

Your Feb. 28 Valley Business story regarding the hordes of job-seekers who are making it unnecessary for companies to engage search firms to assist them attributes this to the recent downsizing, layoffs and firings in the marketplace, and suggests that there are qualified people at every turn. While I am aware that Southern California has high unemployment numbers and a large percentage of laid-off government contractor employees, I would suggest that this is not the market an effective recruiter would be working.
