MPCA Digital Workforce Recruitment Campaign
MPCA launched our first digital media recruitment efforts in early March. Digital advertisements will be utilized to entice local and out-of-state job seekers to MPCA’s job board. We encourage health centers to post any vacancies as we work to drive traffic to our website and job board. A digital toolkit with video and social media templates are available for you to adapt and use in your own recruitment and outreach efforts. You can download those materials below.
