EEO Initiatives:
Priority Communications has been involved with the following EEO initiatives:
On February 23, 2013 Priority Communications owner Jay Philippone attended a seminar on the requirements of the Federal Communications Commission’s Equal Employment Opportunities regulation. The seminar focused on training management level personnel in the methods of ensuring equal employment opportunity and preventing discrimination. The seminar was sponsored by the West Virginia Broadcaster’s Association and presented by Jackson Kelly PLLC.
On April 2, 2014, Priority Communications was represented at the 2nd Annual Networking and Career Fair Event. The event was held from 1:00pm to 3:00 pm at the Penn State DuBois campus. Representative Melissa Varischetti talked with job seekers, students and alumni, throughout the afternoon about career opportunities with Priority Communications’ radio stations.
Priority Communication participated in two of the Ohio Association of Broadcasters Virtual Job Fairs. One that was held from October 28,2013 through November 1, 2013 and also one that was held from April 21, 2014 through April 25, 2014. Priority Communications was able to advertise their current employment opportunities available to people attending the event as an outreach to recruit candidates for employment openings.
Melissa Varischetti also represented Priority Communications at a job fair that was held at Career Link in the DuBois office on March 12, 2014. The job fair was held from 9:00am until noon and during that time Melissa was able to network with various job seekers about the employment opportunities available with Priority Communications.
Priority Communications President and General Manager Jay Philippone established a scholarship program in conjunction with the Upper Ohio Valley Italian Festival, which is designed to assist students interested in pursuing a career in broadcasting. This $750.00 scholarship is given away annually in memory of Mike Sinicropi, a former Priority Communications employee, who was an integral part of the festival, the community and local broadcasting.
