E. During the reporting period, the station employment unit engaged in the following initiatives:
Internship Program: The employment unit provided formal internship training to train and prepare individuals for employment in the broadcast industry through our paid and unpaid college internship program. The program consisted of over 150 hours of training by station employment unit staff and management. Areas of training included production, announcing, public affairs, news or copy writing for broadcast, sales and promotions. Generally the intern program is extended to college level students who may obtain credit for completion of the program. The program creates employment opportunities at the employment unit and other broadcast facilities.
Mentorship Program: KSBJ has provided our on-air staff with the opportunity to learn from the most-listened to non-commercial Christian radio station in the country. WGTS has been able to implement successful strategies and tactics for overall programming, on air delivery, and the process of selecting and playing music. It's been beneficial for us to extrapolate the lessons from others' successes and failures as well as share insights that have a broad appeal from market to market.
On the job training: The employment unit provided on-the job training programs designed to enable station personnel to acquire skills that could qualify them for higher level positions. On-the-job training provided opportunities for employees to be equipped for higher level positions.
Job Fairs: Staff members from the employment unit attended Two (2) Job Fairs at Washington Adventist University in Washington, DC during the reporting period. At the job fairs, students from Washington Adventist University and other colleges and universities learned about job opportunities at WGTS. During the Career Fair, candidates interested in the DC and Baltimore market were informed that WGTS was actively seeking candidates for positions at WGTS.
Career Days: Staff members participated in Two (2) Career Days in the Washington, D.C. area and surrounding community to provide education in the Broadcasting field.
