Connect With Local Talent Through This Free Program
Looking for employees? Having a difficult time filling positions or growing your talent pool? Wondering how to connect with people who have an interest in the work you’re offering? Whether your organization is for profit or non-profit, you may be able to source local talent for entry-level positions with a new program to be piloted in Mason County.
The Chamber Alliance of Mason County is piloting an online platform, EmergeSkilled, that will help local employers connect with Career and Technical Education students in West Shore Educational Service District’s programs at West Shore Community College.
EmergeSkilled is a free service that allows employers to create a profile highlighting their company and advertise job postings. Job seekers, in this case CTE students, would also create a profile that would allow them to show their credentials, skills and interests, and the database makes matches between the two. Employers and job seekers can then contact each other to determine if there is an interest in exploring possible employment.
EmergeSkilled is used to fill entry-level positions that are either full time or part time. It also has options for seasonal work, internships and job shadowing. It is a tool for employers to build their local talent pipeline now and into the future. If the pilot is successful with CTE students, it may be expanded for use with local high schools and West Shore Community College. Currently, there are approximately 500 students in the 13 CTE programs offered: agriscience, allied health, automotive technology, construction trades, criminal justice, culinary arts, digital media, educator academy, graphic communications, health occupations, IT: networking, mechatronics and welding.
