“We’ve listened to our business community as they’ve shared their need to recruit additional employees. From start-ups to company expansions, they all want to hire the best talent possible.” shared Christina Williams, Executive Director. “By bringing resources together, we should have great results,” she concluded.
Once registered, the Chamber will survey positions available: full-time, part-time, remote and/or seasonal positions as well as skills and certifications required. If you have special programs for disadvantaged populations, Veterans, etc., it will be helpful to share this as well. Information gathered is so the WI Job Service partnership can guide job seekers to the best employment matches.
