Jobs In Chicago

Looking for a job? Let Mr. Don Ferris help you, circa 1959. Make sure you wear your pressed white shirt and gray slacks when you show up for the interview. :-)

Illinois Department of Labor presents Jobs In Chicago, with Don Ferris speaking for the Illinois State Employment Service. It aired on WTTW Channel 11. This was one of the first if not the first TV job for Don Ferris. (He was of course a long-time voiceover announcer at both WTTW and WSNS).
