SUBJECT : U.S. Department of Labor Sponsored Workshop on Marketing, Outreach, and Recruitment Techniques for Job Training Programs

  1. Purpose. a. To notify States of a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) sponsored workshop on marketing, outreach, and recruitment techniques for Job Training Programs; and b. To request information on the need for additional technical assistance and/or training in this subject area.

  2. Reference.. Training and Employment Information Notice (TEIN) No. 34-93, Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Targeting, Outreach, and Recruitment Technical Assistance Guide (TAG).

  3. Background. Approximately two years ago, DOL sponsored the development and distribution of a technical assistance guide (TAG) and three train-the-trainer sessions on Targeting, Outreach and Recruitment (TOR). The TAG and training were presented as part of a series of technical assistance and training developed to assist States and service delivery areas (SDAs) in the implementation of quality JTPA programs.

    As a follow-on to the TOR TAG and training, the Private Industry Council (PIC) of Central Florida has developed a two-day workshop to help JTPA organizations further develop or enhance their marketing, outreach, and recruitment efforts.

    The DOL-sponsored workshop is scheduled to take place at the Hilton at Walt Disney World Village on April 28 and 29 prior to the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP) conference held on April 30 through May 3 in Orlando, Florida. The PIC has done an extensive mailing notifying persons in the employment and training system about the workshop.

  4. Action Required.

    1. Please share information about this upcoming workshop with the SDAs, Private Industry Councils, State Training Institutes and other appropriate agencies in you State as soon as possible.

    2. Please advise your colleagues that should they be unable to attend this workshop on such short notice, the Department is still open to receiving information on the need for additional technical assistance and/or training in this subject area. Additional workshops may be scheduled dependent on the need expressed.

  5. Inquiries. Questions on the April 28-29 marketing workshop should be directed to Susan Hamburg, Director of Marketing, Private Industry Council of Central Florida on (407) 428-5800. Comments regarding the need for additional technical assistance or training on marketing should be directed to Elaine Kolodny in the Office of Employment and Training Programs on (202) 219-5229 or Rosemary Kafara-Cowan, Region X - Seattle on (206) 553-5642.
