PERM Local and Ethnic Newspapers
The Dept of Labor Guidelines stipulate that one of your “additional” methods of advertisement can be:
(I) Local and ethnic newspapers. The use of local and ethnic papers can be documented by providing a copy of the page in the paper that contains the employer’s advertisement.
JKT Partners, LLC can help you determine an acceptable paper for recruitment. Often we already have a relationship with them because many PERM Local and Ethnic Newspapers papers are actually run by larger conglomerates who want to have exposure to multiple markets, and are generally more responsive and professional in their dealings with us.
This translates to fast tear sheets, good pricing, and an overall positive result for this recruitment option.
Tips on PERM Local and Ethnic Newspapers:
- Be verbose in the ad, this one will be cheaper than the Sunday paper.
- Include as much job description text as you can.
- Don’t choose it just because it’s free, it will be quite obvious to the Certifying Officer what your intention was.
- Route the responses in a responsible manner, don’t just put a vague address, put down your full address, suite #, and dept. name and contact name. If possible include multiple ways to respond with a resume.
