MosierData, a web development company in Lakeland, picked a Tampa nonprofit as the winner of its 2012 Pro Bono Outreach Package. The winner receives a website designed by MosierData, and a social media branding package.
, an organization that helps those seeking employment, was selected as the recipient for the outreach package. According to MosierData
CEO Jim Mosier, the Tampa-based nonprofit stuck out from the other applicants.
"First and foremost, we were impressed by the application package they submitted, which included a ton of literature and full background on the organization and its board of directors,'' says Mosier. "Secondly, they already had a good idea of what they were looking for from us, and had the internal staff willing to do the day-to-day operations and maintenance, including an infrastructure in IT to support the site.''
The current economic and unemployment situation also played a part in his decision, Mosier says.
"When we looked at the three finalists, one of the considerations we took into account was determining the impact we could make in the community,'' he says. ''There are a lot of people looking for work and the fact that this organization was founded to help people help themselves really struck a chord with us.''
Mosier and his team have already planned their kick-off meeting and are excited to get started. MosierData will supply TampaBay-Job-Links with a new website, branding for their social media platforms and email campaigns.
"It is more of a higher-end site than we initially planned on including, but we are dedicated to this and are giving them the system they need,'' Mosier says. "We are excited about how this will impact the people in the community looking for work.''
