Webinar #2 – Employer Engagement and Retention for Young Jobseekers: What Does It Take?
Presenter: Angela Hoyt
Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2016
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00pm ET (so that's 1pm Atlantic time)
Employers play a critical role in your employment service. Your ability to build strong, productive, long-term employer relationships provides opportunities for your youngest jobseekers who, despite their best efforts, are not able to land a job on their own. This may be because your jobseekers can’t win competitions against more qualified candidates or because employers perceive they just won’t “fit” and have negative perceptions about the “younger generation.” That’s where you come in: you are the bridge between young jobseekers and employers, from unemployment to employment.
The webinar will introduce you to concepts and skills to assist you to find, serve and keep employers and achieve employment results for your youngest jobseekers, including:
The reasons employers say no and what it will take for them to say yes
The secrets within employer objections and false perceptions
The value you add to the employer relationship
The road map to find, serve and keep employers
And while this webinar will be presented in the context of job development for youth with employment barriers, the concepts and skills are applicable to all client groups.
Angela Hoyt has over 28 years of experience in the employment service sector as a Job Developer, Director, and private practice consultant. Angela supports leaders and teams to engage employers and land jobs for jobseekers with employment barriers. Angela has her MA in Interdisciplinary Studies from Royal Roads University. Her thesis research aimed to define the characteristics of successful Job Developers.
Webinars 3 and 4 will also be hosted by ANC on Nov 15 and 29 respectively.
