PHILADELPHIA ELECTRIC INITIATES NEW EMPLOYMENT PROCESS; STREAMLINING TO
 PROVIDE MORE COST EFFECTIVE SERVICE
 PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Philadelphia Electric (NYSE: PE) announced today that it is streamlining its employment process by establishing a Job Hot-Line to provide information about job opportunities, and discontinuing the practice of accepting unsolicited job applications in its walk-in employment office at 2301 Market St. in Philadelphia.
 The PECo Job Hot-Line is 215-841-4340.
 According to John Wilson, Director of Staffing, in PECo's Human Resources Department, "with most of the replacement hiring, resulting from the company's early retirement program, behind us, our external hiring requirements will be further reduced. This means it is no longer economically practical to continue to accept and maintain thousands of unsolicited job applications each year."
 "During 1991 the company accepted over 7,000 applications to fill approximately 150 positions with external candidates," Wilson said. Wilson said current applications on file will be made inactive. This means that job seekers will have to re-apply when a specific vacancy is announced on the Job Hot-Line. Applications for summer positions will remain active, as will applications from candidates who have been through the pre-screening process for a specific position.
 Additionally, Wilson pointed out that the current audit by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), has uncovered a number of potential record-keeping and legal problems associated with the current practice of accepting the high volume of unsolicited applications.
 The new Job Hot-line will be in operation 24-hours a day providing current job vacancies, job requirements and "how to apply" instructions. Employment decisions will be based on job-related criteria with commitment to equal employment opportunity.
