III.  RECRUITMENT INITIATIVES

 

 

 

1

Listed each upper-level category opening in a job bank or newsletter of media trade groups whose membership includes substantial participation of women and minorities

All job opportunities, including upper-level positions, are sent to multiple media trade groups with a broad based membership that includes women and minorities, such as the National Hispanic Coalition in Los Angeles, CA; the Asian American Journalists Association in Seattle; and the Washington State Association of Broadcasters.

 

2

Participated in scholarship programs designed to assist students interested in pursuing a career in broadcasting.

Our stations participate in the Washington State Association of Broadcasters (WSAB) Scholarship Program. Three scholarships are awarded each year to students who choose to pursue careers in broadcasting.  Our sales manager is the past state board chairman and serves on the scholarship committee as well as the continuing grant committee.

 

3

Participated in events sponsored by organizations representing groups present in the community interested in broadcast employment issues, including conventions, career days, workshops, and similar activities. 

Our stations assist in sponsoring a mentorship program administered by the local Rotary Clubs of Centralia and Chehalis in conjunction with local area schools. This year’s mentorship program was held on February 6th, 2013. This is an opportunity for students to job shadow staff here at KELA-KMNT and to get a hands-on experience with radio work opportunities. Also, as part of the program, we have a representative visit the participating community college each year. During this visit, we present information on various careers in radio and other related industry topics.

 

We are also in regular contact with Centralia College’s Work Study program for the purpose of reaching out to, and offering students paid work opportunities (for those who have an interest in radio broadcasting).

 

4. 

Participated in at least 4 job fairs by station personnel who have substantial responsibility in making hiring decisions.

During the reporting period, weattended the Centralia College Job Fair/Career Day on May 9th, 2013. This is an opportunity to meet with students as well and local citizens who were interested in reviewing local career opportunities, including radio on-air broadcasting and advertising sales.   Attended by the Director of Sales and On air/Engineering assistant.

 

Announcements for the event were aired on all stations.

 

5.

Participated in job banks, internet programs and other programs designed to promote outreach generally (i.e. that are not primarily directed to providing notification of specific job vacancies).

 

Our radio stations utilize Facebook as a tool to further promote available job opportunities, and advertise job fairs in which we participate, and have participated.
