HR Strange But True!
August 05, 2010
How do you keep graduates from packing up and skipping town after graduation? One organization is trying to entice graduates and young professionals to call its state “home” with three little words. “Stay. Work. Play.”

The non-profit organization,, is taking a modern approach at recruiting young professionals to New Hampshire. They created a website to target 20 to 30 year olds and promote the state as a great place for young professionals. The website focuses on three areas:

  • Stay – Find out why NH is tops
  • Work – NH can work for you
  • Play – NH plays well

Under “Work”, visitors are provided with state specific information such as an industry overview, jobs and internships, a cost of living calculator, professional networking tips, entrepreneurial resources, and links to blogs and social networking sites.

Overall, the website is designed to be a one-stop site to provide guidance and resources, including links to other sites young professionals may find useful. In addition, the site is interactive, urging visitors to weigh in with their opinions and experiences.

Stay Work Play NH, Inc. was established in spring of 2009 to support the 55% Initiative, a program established by the Governor to retain 55 percent of graduates.
