Here’s the schedule for Saturday, March 23:

9:00am

Doors open for stations to make early table selections and set up for the afternoon Career Fair.

10:00am

4 Traits of Breakthrough Talent workshop for stations by Steve Wexler.

In this 90-minute session, Steve reveals the specific 14 traits that are inherent in the most successful content creators. Understanding these 14 traits will help broadcasters recruit more interesting people and will unlock ways to coach our talent more effectively.

“When we identify, recruit and coach on-air talent, do we really know what we’re looking for, or are we relying on a subjective and imprecise method for selection and feedback?  Do we know what traits are inherent in the very best, most successful breakthrough talent?  If we do, we’ll be more successful hiring, evaluating, and coaching our content creators,” – says former Journal and Scripps broadcaster Steve Wexler.

12pm

Spring Awards Luncheon for the Indiana Association of School Broadcasters.  IBA members stations attending the Career Fair events are invited to lunch to see the “best of the best” award-winning student broadcasters.

2:00pm to 4:30pm

All Job Seekers will be welcome

We do ask that member stations adhere to the following six rules, in order to receive an EEO participation certificate at the conclusion of the event.

  1. Update your Job Postings on the IBA website, as this is the primary way that Job Seekers will find out about available openings.
  2. Promote the event On-Air. IBA will be providing broadcast-ready spots for TV and radio for registered stations. Stations are also permitted to create their own promotional announcements to encourage attendance at the Career Fair.
  3. Attend the 90-minute “14 Traits of Breakthrough Talent” seminar held by Steve Wexler.
  4. “Dress for Success” by putting your best foot forward as we look to attract young talent to our industry. This applies to table presentations as well as your team. The most attractive and engaging displays typically win the most attention from Job Seekers.
  5. Stay for the entirety of the Career Fair (2:00PM to 4:30PM Eastern time).
