RECAREERING NEWSLETTER PINPOINTS HOT GROWTH FIELDS FOR THE TECHNOLOGY-SHY

 NORTHBROOK, Ill., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Although workers will need basic computer skills more than ever over the next decade, not everyone has to be a whiz on the computer in order to survive, says ReCareering Newsletter.
 Career changers uncomfortable with technology still have plenty of high-growth, low-tech options in the '90s, says the newsletter in its April issue. Among the hot, non-technical fields the newsletter suggests are those in the hospitality industry, retailing and the social or professional services.
 Career opportunities will be particularly plentiful in the hospitality industry, expected to be one of the top growth fields for the '90s, as hotels, restaurants and travel benefit from an aging and relatively affluent population. Projections call for the industry to be adding 750,000 employees each year by the year 2000. Jobs most in demand will be hotel managers, restaurant and food service managers, hotel clerks, restaurant site selectors and member services directors.
 A tie-in story in the April issue of ReCareering details the growing job opportunities for mature employees in the resort hotel field, highlighting the effort of a new luxury hotel in Puerto Rico to add 2,500 staff by its opening this fall.
 In retailing, job opportunities will be concentrated with discounters like Wal-Mart or specialty stores like The Gap, where explosive growth is expected to add some 900,000 new jobs by 2005.
 Other growth areas the non-technical could set their sights on are teaching -- particularly in special education -- employee training and finance. Two new health care careers, that of physician's assistant and nurse practitioner, are expected to be hot as well.
 Also in the April issue of ReCareering Newsletter -- a new publication designed to help downsized managers and early retirees in their second career search -- is a profile of tiny Nevada City, Calif. and a number of transplants who have ReCareered there, plus stories on negotiating a favorable exit package, getting past the denial at being let go and on with your career search and a look at the phenomenon of long hours and overwork in our society.
