CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WHAS-A/LOUISVILLE middayer FRANCENE is tackling the unemployment situation in the area with a segment that offers "Radio Want Ads" to connect employers with potential employees. The segment started three weeks ago with "tremendous" response, FRANCENE tells ALL ACCESS. The segment, intended for an hour, lasted an hour and a half and featured audio job listings for several work categories, drawing a strong response from both job seekers and local businesses. In addition, a web component includes job listings and podcast versions of the segments.
While she's offering job listings on the air, FRANCENE is also holding a free job seeker seminar next month at a local university to help the newly unemployed learn how to look for and get new positions. The seminar will feature speakers discussing topics including using technology to land a job, handling an interview, selling yourself, managing money and mortgage during unemployment, how to know when going back to school is right, and how to stay positive while job hunting.
