BOSTON GLOBE TO OFFER FREE SITUATION WANTED ADVERTISEMENTS FOR UNEMPLOYED

 BOSTON GLOBE TO OFFER FREE SITUATION WANTED ADVERTISEMENTS
 FOR UNEMPLOYED
 BOSTON, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boston Globe will offer unemployed individuals a free situation wanted advertisement in the Globe in an effort to help them find work.
 The public service program will kick off Sunday, March 1 with a quarter-page ad in the Globe's Sunday help wanted section announcing the offer. The ad contains a coupon to fill out and mail to the Globe. The coupon ad will appear a second time on Sunday, March 8.
 To direct potential employers to the ads, the Globe will also run messages in the paper and commercials on radio directing business men and women throughout the area to the program.
 Individuals can submit a five-line maximum situation wanted classified ad outlining the kind of work they are seeking.
 All ads must be postmarked by Wednesday, March 11, the deadline for submissions. Ads must be submitted using the coupon, be sent to the Globe by mail, and be signed by the person sending the ad or contain a telephone number, a non-Globe P.O. Box number, or the address of the individual.
 The ads will start to run Monday, March 16 and continue in the daily newspaper, Monday through Friday, until all submissions have appeared once. The situation wanted ads will appear in alphabetical order as they are received by the Globe. Each page of ads will contain the various job titles of situations wanted ads, e.g., professional, sales, medical, general.
 The Globe, which runs 87 percent of all help wanted advertising in the Boston market, has made several previous efforts to help those seeking employment.
 For the last two years, the Globe has sponsosred job fairs in conjunction with the twice-yearly publication of its Good Health Magazine and has sponsored job-finding seminars for unemployed people in a joint effort with the Northeast Human Resources Association.
 Also last year, again in cooperation with the Northeast Human Resources Association, the Globe offered its readers a free pamphlet, Tips for the Job Hunter. Nearly 5,000 pamphlets were mailed in response to that offer.
