Newspaper and Print Advertising
Utilizing newspapers (within specific geographic locations), flyers, trade journals, career catalogs (such as Washtenaw Community College), along with others, could promote your career opportunities to minority communities.
Employee Referral Programs (ERPs)
A referral program will provide U-M staff with the opportunity to encourage hiring managers/supervisors to recruit specific qualified candidates based on need. If such a program is used, referral candidates should make up approximately 40% of a department’s annual hires. Such a program can be available to current department employees (or institution-wide depending on program guidelines) as a way to increase the applicant pool with people they want to work with. If there is an interest in developing an employee referral program, guidance and coordination will be needed to set program guidelines. Departments will be able to determine their own referral bonus (monetary, gift certificates, etc.).
