I 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!
