LONG-TERM RECRUITMENT ACTIVITIES COMPLETED DURING REPORTING PERIOD



Participation in events or programs sponsored by educational institutions relating to career opportunities in broadcasting:  WQCS offers station tours and discussion of career opportunities to student groups and classes throughout the year. These groups included substantial representation by the diverse student population.  A WQCS booklet on job opportunities was provided to the students.


On August 16, 2013, the job booklets were also sent to 22 local high school guidance offices in four local counties to inform students about broadcasting careers.


On October 19, 2012, the Manager, News Director, and Operations Manager hosted a college business class to explain broadcasting operations and how broadcast stations conduct business.


On November 30, WQCS hosted 24 high school students participating in a Great Explorations program that encouraged students to consider various careers including broadcasting and were given booklets.


Also on November 30 and as part of National Disabilities Month, the WQCS Operations Manager was a presenter on a panel for the Indian River State College Division of Minority Affairs entitled "Accommodating People with Disabilities in the Workplace.” He discussed being visually impaired in the work force and talked about the radio station and the radio reading service.



Five IRSC college graduating seniors participated in a Capstone academic business program working with the station staff on a community involvement project in December 2012.


On May 8, 2013, the WQCS Operations Manager gave a tour and explained the stations broadcasting operations to a radio class from Faith Baptist Church and 20 students received the job booklets. 


Also in May, a St. Edwards school student job shadowed the WQCS News Director for a week.


On June 19, 2013, WQCS hosted a tour and demonstration for 24 students for the Youth Leadership program which is an intensive two-week college credit class geared towards high-achieving high school students sponsored by the Roundtable of St. Lucie County and IRSC.  Brochures were made available to the students.


Sponsorship of Community Events Regarding Broadcast Employment Opportunities: WQCS provided training by the Operations Manager to three new volunteers from the community who serve as readers/console operators for the Radio Reading Service for the Blind and Visually Impaired.


Internship Programs:  Two IRSC college electronics students served internships during the fall and spring semesters under the supervision of the Chief Engineer.  


During the summer semester 2013, a Florida State University student interned in production and read for the Radio Reading Service with the Operations Manager.


In summer semester 2013, a Florida Atlantic University graduating student in multi-media journalism completed an internship in the news department.


WQCS submitted work by an IRSC student intern for the state Associated Press broadcast news awards and he was honored with two first place honors.



Participation in scholarship programs designed to assist students interested in pursuing a career in broadcasting:  WQCS continued to provide an annual scholarship designed to assist a student interested in a career in media and enrolling in a bachelor’s degree program.  The student selected was a first generation college student who immigrated to the United States.


WQCS broadcasts regular announcements asking community organizations to contact WQCS to receive notification of employment opportunities.


WQCS had 11 full-time employees in the preceding 12 months and therefore is required to complete four long-term recruitment activities every two years.
