Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday, 03/09. You have 3 weeks to implement a strategy that will deepen employer relationships and help clients. Go for it!
WHY: Maintaining contact with employers gets harder to do when the new hires are settled and there are no immediate job openings to fill. You need to keep limited resources focused on finding jobs for clients who need them now. You want to keep in touch so employers don’t forget to contact you when they need to hire again.
- Compile a list of employers to include. Consider adding a few prospects, as well as all of the companies who already employ clients.
- Draft correspondence. Say thank you. Keep it brief. Think about adding no more than 2 additional points. Maybe provide a save the date for World Refugee Day celebrations.
- Sign up for Higher’s Blog and we’ll send you the signage. We’ve translated it into Arabic, Burmese, French, Spanish and Swahili. We’ll also include the English language template in case you want to add other languages. The signs are provided as word documents so you can add your agency logo if you want.
- Provide the signs early in the week of March 3: If you send an email, don’t forget your email signature with contact information. If you deliver hard copies, consider tapping into volunteer resources or visiting yourself, especially for the most important employers on your list.
