FloridaWorks offers a variety of services, one of which is hosting targeted hiring events for companies. FloridaWorks customizes each according to the company’s needs. There are three variations of targeted hiring events, each denoting various FloridaWorks’ contributions:
- Open House: FloridaWorks provides the location; markets employers’ open positions and the date of the targeted hiring event; and instructs candidates to attend on the day of the event.
- Invitation-only Hiring Event: FloridaWorks provides the location and the employer schedules the candidates that he/she would like to interview.
- Full Service Hiring Event: FloridaWorks provides the location; prescreens candidates according to the employer’s specification(s); markets any open positions and the date of the targeted hiring event; and schedules the interviews.
Companies, such as ProLogistix, Silver Airways, PSA Healthcare, Comfort Keepers, Adecco, Aerotek, Remedy Intelligent Staffing and Pollo Tropical, have utilized FloridaWorks to host targeted hiring events and have yielded significant success.
“The ability to use FloridaWorks to network and to get personally connected to not only the candidates but also to the community has proven to be extremely beneficial to Aerotek,” states Aaron Machado, Account Manager. “When it comes to recruiting, nothing replaces the personal interaction needed to ensure that you are finding the right fit for your company.”
For logistical purposes and to maximize marketing efforts, FloridaWorks ask that companies provide a minimum of two weeks notice and posts open positions with EmployFlorida.com, the State of Florida’s job matching database.
