EEO Public File Report

Stations WTEB(FM), WKNS(FM), WBJD(FM) and WZNB(FM)

August 1, 2014 – July 31, 2015

During the period August 1, 2014 through July 31, 2015, Craven Community College (“the College”) hired no fulltime personnel in connection with the station employment unit consisting of noncommercial educational Stations WTEB(FM), New Bern, NC, WKNS(FM), Kinston, NC, WBJD(FM), Atlantic Beach, NC, and WZNB(FM), New Bern, NC.  These employment unit stations are operated together by the College as Public Radio East.

The hiring processes for open positions within the employment unit are undertaken through the College’s separate Human Resources Department (“HRD”).

The College routinely engages in extensive activities and programs designed to promote workforce development and employment and to raise awareness of the availability of employment positions in broadcasting. Two such programs, which have long been available on the College's campus, include:

Small Business Center ‐ The objective of Craven Community College's Small Business Center is to increase the success rate and the number of viable small businesses in Craven County by providing high quality, readily accessible assistance to prospective and existing small businesses.

Craven County JobLink Career Center ‐ The College is a partner with the Craven County JobLink Career Center, which represents the major workforce agencies of Craven County and provides comprehensive employment and training services for job seekers and employers in a convenient, one‐stop Career Center.

In addition to those on‐campus efforts to promote workforce development, the College supports economic and workforce development by collaborating with organizations that foster business vitality and job growth. For example, the College partners with the Craven Economic Development Commission and its support organization, the Committee of 100, organizations which champion efforts that broadly support economic development throughout the county.

Furthermore, the former President of the College, Catherine Chew, who was president through July 20, 2015, was an active member of the boards of directors and active committees of multiple community organizations, including the Board of Directors of the New Bern Chamber of Commerce, Craven 100 Alliance, the North Carolina Symphony, the Swiss Bear Downtown Development Corporation, the Havelock Chamber of Commerce, and Allies for Cherry Point.  In addition, both the College as previously represented by Dr. Chew and Public Radio East are members of the Craven Alliance for Arts and Culture.  Dr. Chew also has appeared on the College’s stations during periodic fundraisers and has been clearly associated with the stations.  Her identification with the stations and substantial involvement in multiple community organizations, many of which seek to serve a diverse array of community residents, has served to bring the availability of employment in broadcasting to a wide variety of residents and community leaders.  In addition, Public Radio East is itself a member of the Carteret, New Bern and Onslow Chambers of Commerce.

These activities and relationships increase the College’s visibility among potential sources of job candidates and thus promote outreach generally.

Additionally, Vickie Moseley‐Jones, Executive Director of HR/Chief Diversity Officer regularly participates in the Craven County Annual Job Fair and maintains an extensive recruitment listing to post job openings.  Further, in September 2014, the College participated in the Havelock Convention Center Job Fair.

In addition, the College recruits for any full time positions that become available in minority newspapers and send notices to the historically black colleges and universities in North Carolina.
