When you go for the advertising process, it’s important that you not only cater to a U.S. but a foreign audience. Remember that there’s a specific manner that goes into PERM advertising that you need to adhere to to help you proceed in hiring the right employee for your business. It takes a good strategy and knowing all of the paperwork that will help you with your staffing. To assist you in the process, here are a few things you should know when seeking this type of promotion.
Putting a Job Order in the Right Place
Not only do you need to put in a job order, but you must put it in with your State Workforce Agency (SWA). The SWA makes sure it correlates to the job position and state. If you have a job opportunity in NYC, then the request needs to be in the same area. After this is done, you have to wait 30 days (weekends included) for the order. Additionally, you have to add another 30 days to start advertising to those foreign-born. This is to give ample time to any U.S. workers who may want to be hired by your company. You might want to hold out a little longer to ensure that everything goes through correctly. At that point, you’ll be able to file Form 9089 to let foreigners know to apply to any openings you have in your company. Another thing to do is to promote via newspapers.
Promote Your Job Opportunity Via Newspaper
This is an entirely different process altogether. First of all, you need to place a job ad in the paper for at least 2 Sundays. Make sure they are in your area and have widespread circulation to get the most attraction. You need to list some of the following details: business name, a good description of the position that needs to be filled, where applications and resumes need to be sent, and the job location. It’s all about circulating this information within your job area to find someone who has the least hassle getting to your building. Also, it should be posted in your place of work.
Make an Internal Job Posting
A notice of filing (NOF) helps to get the information out directly in the workplace. You should have this up for at least ten business days. It lets your workers know that you are in the midst of hiring someone foreign-born. You need to include items like: business name and location, wages/compensation, contact information and where to send applications/resumes, and the job details. A good immigration lawyer can help look over the fine details so that you don’t miss anything.
