Getting the Job

Boot camp was initially designed as an orientation to Navy polices as in the first months of the WAVES women were only being accepted in three specific positions: yeomen, storekeepers and radiomen.

Things changed a bit by the time Hunter College opened. A variety of jobs had opened up to women by this point – and it was up to the Hunter brass to determine which job was the best fit for each boot.
