Abstract:

Public utilities and others in the wastewater treatment business are scrambling to find qualified employees. Often we come up short. Where to go for with this ever escalating employment challenge? Sometimes our best help is in our own backyard.

This presentation will provide a summary of recruiting resources available from state agencies around the country. Many states have gone high tech in the kinds of help they can provide employers. This presentation will consolidate these many tools into one comprehensive reference package. Participants will be provided with URL's and other online resources to their State's employment resources. This paper will also provide insights into some of the unique approaches various organizations have used to attract qualified applicants and an assessment of what works and what doesn't.

A reality check on current trends and programs will provide the attendee with ideas and concepts that might work in their community.

Some case studies of proven techniques will be discussed with examples of how to improve and organization's recruitment program at little or no cost.
