Job Fair:

The Cache Valley Media Group helped organize, publicize and execute the Utah Broadcasters Association Job Fair on March 8, 2017. Management-level personnel attended the job fair and met with at least 20 prospective interns and employees. Promotional announcements were made on-air, displayed on radio station websites and flyers for the job fair were posted on premises.



The Cache Valley Media Group helped sponsor multiple business-to-business events over the course of the last 12 months, including the Cache Business Summit (sponsored by the Utah Small Business Development Center), several USU Partners in Business conferences and the World Trade Center Utah. Cache Valley Media Group employees attended these events and had time to speak to participants about business and employment opportunities. Cache Valley Media Group also hosted a free, no obligation marketing seminar for local businesses that was conducted by Wayne Ens.



Staff members regularly conduct tours of the Cache Valley Media Group facility for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, church groups, Cache Employment and Training Center and others to inform them of the education and training that may be required to obtain employment or advance a career in the broadcasting industry. CVMG partnered with the Mount Logan Middle School Discovery program in January and February 2017. Sixth graders toured CVMG facilities, received hands-on training to produce radio commercials, and met with multiple staff members to discuss job duties and how they got a career in broadcasting.



Two interns participated with the Cache Valley Media Group through the year. Intern responsibilities included, but were not limited to: assisting in news gathering, producing talk shows, assisting on-air DJs, audio transcription, sports photography, videography, and sports reporting.
