 ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT SURVIVES RECESSION
 PHILADELPHIA, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The percentage of unemployed


individuals choosing entrepreneurship over re-employment stayed the same between 1990 and 1991 in spite of the sluggish economy.
 Data released by Right Associates indicates 18 percent of outplacement candidates completing programs with Right Associates chose to start their own businesses in both 1990 and 1991. The early '90s percentages reflect a slight drop from the 19 percent of outplacement candidates who turned to self-employment in 1989.

 "The statistics also suggest that our career management program is doing its job," continued Tilton. "It's working to help individuals evaluate their abilities and design a career through which they can learn, grow and risk being successful."
