Your Broadcasters Association would like to remind our members that we will be facilitating a quarterly virtual job fair during the week of April 13-17, 2020.
To register, simply provide our association with
- The call letters of the stations interested in participating
- The name of a hiring agent at your station and that person’s email address
- A mailing address for the stations participating
- Logos of all participating stations
- Post any job openings at CareerPage.org. If you are new to CareerPage.org, simply click on the “Need to Register” link under the Member Login tab. Use the access code 3Sdg54 to complete your registration.
- Beginning the Monday of the job fair, your participating stations promote the event and drive visitors to the site. You can link to the site from your website, or send listeners/viewers directly to www.BroadcastersVirtualJobFair.com.
- During the week of the virtual job fair, your hiring agent will receive applications from visitors to the site via email. In addition, your representative may also be contacted directly by visitors requesting more information about a specific job or about the industry in general via an online comment form (keeping your email address confidential). Your hiring agent will be responsible for responding to these comments within a reasonable amount of time during the week of the event.
- At the conclusion of a successful week, your station will have access to the applications online, statistics about how many people visited the site and a letter of participation that includes any active jobs postings. While this information is archived on the BroadcastersVirtualJobFair.com site, remember to KEEP THIS INFORMATION IN YOUR EEO FILE.
The Association would like to remind our member stations that while virtual job fairs are a viable alternative to the old-fashioned job fair held at the community center in town, virtual job fairs should be considered as a supplemental outreach program to educate the public about careers in broadcasting and the qualifications necessary to fill those positions. Keep in mind, of course, that a station should never rely on any single effort to fulfill their entire EEO requirement. There are several options for fulfilling those requirements, including participating in activities sponsored by community groups, establishing an intern program, participating in scholarship programs, mentoring, training, etc.
If you’d like to sign up to participate in the upcoming job fair, or if you have any questions, please contact Tracy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
