RecruitLI is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to developing targeted Education - to - Industry programming aimed at economic development and talent retention for our region.
RLI's Two-Pronged Engagement Strategy
Employers: RLI works with employers to develop trainee and federally registered apprentice programs. We aim to keep businesses on Long Island and create career opportunities for our local community. We can also assist industries in marketing and building awareness around their companies and the career pathways they offer. We believe prospective employees search for corporate cultures that promote training and offer clear paths to career advancement.
High Schools / Colleges / Townships: Bridging the gap between education and industry is critical to the region’s economic success. Tight labor markets are stifling company growth while educators are not always aware of the opportunities available to students in their own back yards.
One way we engage both sides is by working collaboratively with school leadership, local politicians, and industry to create "Opportunity Fairs" for High School students, their parents, and educators. These fairs demonstrate the economic opportunities available as young adults look to start and build their careers on Long Island. It is critically important to provide clear options for both college and non-college bound students. Corporate apprenticeships, college certification programs and on the job training offered by the Trades create access to highly skilled and highly compensated careers for those not pursuing four year college degrees. RecruitLI can provide educators exposure to these programs and assist in connecting them to available resources.
