Get Started: Know Your Neighborhood

The first step in a local hire strategy is to understand some of the employment-related metrics characterizing the community you are partnering with. If you are in a community with a low literacy level and a low high school completion rate, it will follow that many residents do not meet the most basic criteria for university job posting, which minimally are likely to require a high school diploma.

Knowing the current unemployment rate, the high school graduation rate, and the average literacy level will give your team a sense of the types of ladders you will need to build in order to help residents over these particular obstacles to employment in your institution.
