     HAMMOND – The Louisiana Small Business Development Center (LSBDC) at Southeastern Louisiana University will hold a free seminar in Hammond March 19 designed to help business with recruiting and hiring.
     The seminar titled “Recruiting and Hiring: Finding the Right Person for the Right Job” will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at the Southeast Louisiana Business Center, room 208, located at 1514 Martens Dr.
     “Talent acquisition is critical to the success of any business,” said SBDC Training Coordinator Karen Romero. “This three-hour workshop will give you the tools to recruit and reveal the top candidate for the job.”
     Romero said attendees will learn how to develop knowledge, skill and abilities; craft compelling job descriptions; effectively write and post job ads; market companies through total compensation packages; and build structured interviews.
     “Items and thoughts to bring to the seminar include a job description or a job title and a few sentences or outline of a job you need to fill,” Romero said. “You can also bring a list of all benefits. This could include medical benefits, dental benefits, employee assistance program, disability, wellness plans, free lunches, membership dues, 401 (K), vacation, paid time off, bonuses, and discounts. Bring your laptop or tablet if you like, but it is not necessary.”
