  • Sharing your success stories with us regarding initiatives to hire long-term unemployed job seekers, older workers, or veterans
Depending on their level of engagement, employer partners and supporters will be recognized in several ways, including
  • By being featured on the NSCN website, with company logos, on the list of employer supporters;
  • By being featured on the rotating “spotlight” page with stories featuring their hiring initiatives for veterans, long-term unemployed, older workers, and other groups of job seekers;
  • By being invited to become members of the NSCN Advisory Board, which will be recognized at all NSCN events;
  • By being highlighted in press releases and progress reports;
  • By having their job listings highlighted and featured on the “newstartcareernetwork.jobs” microsite being created by Direct Employers Association; and
