New for 2017: Job Board at aikenchamber.net
A new resource for employers and job seekers is now available from the Aiken Chamber, an online job board at aikenchamber.net.
Chamber members are able to post jobs and gain exposure to individuals looking for jobs in the area. Job seekers are able to access information about jobs available with the Chamber’s 1,000-plus members. Each listing includes information about the job and details about how to apply for a position.
The Chamber’s job board will be another benefit of Chamber membership and there is no registration or fee for the job seeker.
According to the 2015 Regional Workforce Study conducted by the Savannah River Site Community Reuse Organization (SRSCRO), Aiken, Allendale and Barnwell counties in South Carolina and Columbia and Richmond counties in Georgia are expected to average about 7,500 job openings annually between 2014 and 2019. These jobs are both new jobs and replacement jobs. Finding competent skilled workers is imperative to the success of the area’s economy.
“We are taking one more step in the regional effort to ensure that connections are being made between employers and the workforce with the release of a Chamber Job Board,” said Chamber Board Member and Vice-Chair of Business and Community Development, Julie Whitesell, Meybohm, REALTORS®. “It’s a simple way to allow our members to stretch their recruiting net for talent and for our local workforce to make connections.”
