Family Life Ministries, Inc. interviewed or corresponded with, in various forms 49 individuals who showed interest in the two openings with the Family Life Network. Twenty of those contacts were for the news position; 29 were for the part-time on-air position. We were able to fill the one part-time on-air position as a result of hiring an individual who had done part-time work previously. The news position has yet to be filled.
Family Life Ministries, Inc. utilizes a few primary methods of securing qualified applicants. These sites also provide a good cross section of minority applicants. Family Life had interviews/contacts with 13 female candidates; four African-American candidates; and one Asian-American candidate. FLM also utilized in-house efforts by posting these positions, along with the position on its own website employment opportunities section as well as announcing current staff needs at FLM public sponsored events.
During the previous year, many we corresponded with were as a result of online advertising. However, the majority of our significant applicants came as a result of personal contact over the past few years and through Family Life’s own website. Most of the online applicants did not identify the exact service that they were responding to, but we did see references to HisAir.net and Journalismjobs.com.

1. Was involved in a major summer festival in New York where employment needs were addressed to numerous adult attendees.
