Job Development 101: Excellent Idea from IRC New Jersey

Lighbulb Stock PhotoI called IRC’s Elizabeth, NJ office last week before business hours.  The first option in their general message directs potential employers to a dedicated extension where they could leave a message about their staffing needs.

What an excellent idea!  Everyone should consider doing this.  Why?

  • Employers can experience how the agency’s services are designed to meet their needs before they make their specific request.
  • Just hearing the message publicizes the value of refugees in the workforce to everyone who calls
  • It suggests that employment services are in demand, which might encourage others to consider it when they have a job opening

Don’t forget to check the messages every day and get back to potential employers immediately!
