So, when you are outreaching to potential employers – DON’T STOP after that first “No, sorry…we have no job openings.”  While an employer may not have a job opening right then, she might still want to help out in some way…Perhaps, conduct mock interviews with a job readiness group…meet with a job seeker, interested in conducting an informational interview… offer an internship or job shadowing opportunity…or even a financial literacy workshop (like the one offered by Bethpage Federal Credit Union this past September to 32 MHA, Nassau County PROS students)!

And the more mutually beneficial, the stronger the relationship!…When you hear about tax incentives or training subsidies, pass the information on to employers…Or offer assistance/resources on retention strategies, ADA regulations, reasonable accommodations…

 like MHANYS’ December 7th Statewide Business Advisory Council forum (co-sponsored with Capital Region Human Resources Association):

 If you represent a business, healthcare or non-profit organization with one/more federal contracts, your organization may be affected by the new ADA rule (Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act)!

 Don’t miss this opportunity to hear seasoned HR Professionals and Bond, Schoeneck & King Labor and Employment Attorney Robert Manfredo  discuss:

  • Expectations of this new ADA rule;
  • Financial consequences of not adhering to the ADA and
  • Proven strategies for recruiting and retaining talented employees with disabilities
