  • What Recruiters Can Be Doing Now

    In our new COVID-19 impacted world

  • Recruiting Involves the Following

    • Planning and Organizing • Finding and Identifying • Making Connections • Recruiting • Follow Up • Documenting Efforts • Beginning Services/ Providing

    Referrals

    • What is possible today? • Every single part of recruiting

    is still possible with some shift changes in how we operate and what we do.

  • Planning and Organizing

    • Recruiters should: • Know their areas • Know when people are

    coming and going and why related to agriculture work.

    • Make connections with those places and people that possible eligible families and youth come in contact with.

    • This is all still possible with COVID-19 but it can not be done in traditional ways.

  • Planning and Organizing- Stay Informed

    • We are working to keep everyone updated. Please check this page often

  • Planning and Organizing • Do you have your farms and

    agribusinesses mapped out in your area with a comprehensive list of these places?

    • Is this completely up to date? • Do these farms and

    agribusinesses know of your program and have you developed a plan to work with them?

    • Have you had conversations with human resources and farm owners or managers?

  • Planning and Organizing • Great sites to use to find farms

    and agribusinesses • https://www.manta.com/ • (like the white pages for

    businesses with info about the company)

    • Often once you search they will provide suggestions of other businesses similar to the one you are looking for.

    https://www.manta.com/

  • Planning and Organizing • Review your own state Department

    of Agriculture website • Often they promote specific state

    products and farms with specific listing and crop information.

    • Your state Agriculture office is another great place to reach out to now.

    • Some states make coalitions or official networks and Ag can be invited into this network.

  • Planning and Organizing

    • Review your states Agriculture Extension Resources and websites for each county.

    • https://nifa.usda.gov/land-grant-colleges- and-universities-partner-website- directory?state=All&type=Extension

    https://nifa.usda.gov/land-grant-colleges-and-universities-partner-website-directory?state=All&type=Extension

  • Planning and Organizing • Extension does a lot of work with

    farmers. You want to know what types of meetings, trainings, and resources for farmers.

    • https://nifa.usda.gov/land-grant-colleges- and-universities-partner-website- directory?state=All&type=Extension

    • Examples- Beef Producer, vegetable, food safety, pesticides, aquaculture trainings, etc. Whenever there is a new farm bill they are the ones providing training to the agriculture community.

  • Planning and Organizing- Housing

    • Do you know the housing sites families/youth normally come to?

    • Do you need to reach out in more urban areas and talk with housing managers to identify new places you can recruit?

    • You are looking often for places that families first come to when they are new in an area.

  • Finding and Identifying

    • Thank goodness for the internet

    • Effective recruitment does not just mean you drive around and look and ask.

    • Now we need to be continuing to get to know our areas.

    • Now is a perfect time to get to know all of your area.

    • This is still possible with some tweaks to normal recruiting efforts.

  • Finding and Identifying

    • Use the farm subsidy database to find large farms in your area.

    • This will list top subsidy recipients you can then go to Manta to find their information.

  • Making Connections

    • Some people have more time these days and others have way less.

    • Be effective to know who has more strain and who would be good to reach out to right now.

    • Think outside the box in way to reach out and ways to make connections.

    • Be deliberate in finding ways to reach out to families.

    • Making connections is more essential now then ever.

  • Making Connections- Use Social Media

    • Programs are often hesitant to use social media but it is a great tool.

    • Now is the time to start using these tools if they have not yet been used in your state.

    • If they have expand your efforts.
