Highlights from Day One of Higher’s Second Annual Refugee Employment Workshop
Here are some statistics from a packed day learning new sales-based techniques for job development from consultant Allen Anderson and our colleagues from Colorado and Nebraska.
92% of jobs are gotten through trusted referrals or being in the right place at the right time.
Only 8% of jobs are gotten through “competition” (applying along with everyone else.)
Each Job Developer should have strong relationships with at least 25 employers who are repeat hirers.
The majority of attendees at today’s optional session on job development spend less than 25% of their time developing relationships with employers.
120 attendees from 26 states, 50+ cities and 8 national resettlement agency networks are learning together here in Omaha. Follow what we’re all excited about @higheradvantage!
