Before we worked with Craig and Scott, almost no one applied on our website. Thanks to their process, we came up with an approach that produced 84 online applications within seven months!

Blitz Media Design has been selected to speak at the 2018 Spring Conference of the Ohio Provider Resource Association (OPRA). Blitz owners Craig and Scott de Fasselle will speak about how to increase online Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) applications online.

DSPs work directly with people who have physical and/or intellectual disabilities. The demand for DSPs is high but providers struggle to attract applicants. The Blitz team has over 20 years experience helping Developmental Disabilities (DD) nonprofits with marketing. Scott and Craig have invested a great deal of time interviewing existing nonprofits and others in the DD community about the challenges in attracting qualified applicants. Numerous organizations were kind enough to share their insights and experience, allowing Blitz Media Design to share valuable help at the conference.

Their talk at the Spring OPRA Conference will focus on:

  • How to dramatically improve online job postings
  • How to write text that motivates the right people to apply
  • Easy changes providers can make to their website job applications to get more applicants

The techniques presented at the conference have been successfully applied to current Blitz Media Design clients. According to the director of the Resident Home Association of Greater Dayton, Peter J. Roll, "Before we worked with Craig and Scott, almost no one applied on our website. Thanks to their process, we came up with an approach that produced 84 online applications within seven months!"
