Many of the
technically-oriented magazines in the pre-post-war era were going all out with
advertisements promising training for careers for servicemen in the post-war
era. This one by National Schools in a 1945 issue of Radio News is a
good example. By January of 1945, the attitude of people in America and Europe
was that the end of World War II was imminent, and life would soon return to a
peacetime normal state. There would be a lot of rebuilding to do in Europe that
would drain tech companies of some desperately needed engineers, technicians,
and assembly workers. In America, labor markets were flooded with workers hoping
to exploit the skills learned and practiced while beating back the forces of
Nazism, Fascism, Communism, Marxism, and other "isms." Institutions like
National Schools offered opportunities for at-home training courses while others
provided fully equipped campus facilities, including living arrangements.
