This project will save us $5,776 , allowing us to hire part time staff and fulfill our mission!

Project Details

What We Need
  • Recommendations on both styles of recruiting (active versus passive) and proper channels to pursue candidates
  • Guidelines for the hiring process, including the order and number of interview rounds, reference checks, and general best practices for an inclusive interview
  • Effective interviewing techniques and clear, consistent standards for evaluating candidates
  • Tips for negotiating details such as compensation package and title
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a willingness to learn!!!!, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a teacher's contract, which needs to be tightened up, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Our performing and teaching artists are the face of our organization; it is essential that they are committed to what we do.
Also, the organization MUST build an administrative infrastructure for the organization to continue to grow. The demand is ever increasing but we are lacking capacity and need to put structures in place to find good staff for our organization.
