Social Networking- A Win-Win for Jobs in a Rural County
Sharing is caring
In a rural community it’s hard to use the Internet to find job opportunities because local businesses tend not to be very Internet savvy. We recommend setting up a team of young ambassadors to reach out to the business community to guide them in the process of using social media to publicize jobs as well as develop their customer base. If local businesses can do a better job of marketing to young people through social media, they can increase their customer base and thereby increase their job openings. Once you get the businesses on board, you can set up a local internet hub – a facebook page or some other platform – that can serve as a local match site for businesses looking for workers and workers looking for jobs. The young people can be trained in elementary business needs so they can understand how to talk to business people about using social media to connect with the community. This can be done through workshops or meetings with local business people. We think this is a win-win for our rural community – it will strengthen our local businesses and it will facilitate hiring of local young people looking for jobs.
After being medically discharged from the military I came back to Madison where I work at the Boys and Girls Club. It took me 5 months to find a job .my community.
