Dear Chamber Professional,
Every company has its own unique set of challenges but, as you know, the challenge in finding the right talent to help represent and grow your business is not unique to any one business or industry. The process often involves pouring through hundreds of résumés just to find potential candidates with the right skill sets.
To help Pennsylvania employers more efficiently find qualified employees, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry recently launched JobGatewaySM, a free, job-matching website. It’s a valuable, user-friendly tool that uses the most technologically advanced job “spidering” to pull multiple websites’ job postings into one site.
Almost 20,000 employers are currently using JobGatewaySM, with new companies posting jobs daily. If you are a company with fewer than 250 employees or a small business owner with little time to search through a list of job seekers, JobGatewaySM has the occupational profile, skills and wage-matching information to speed things up for you. With a real-time platform called PA Career Coach, your business can find up-to-date, local employment data such as projected job openings, recent job-growth areas and estimated earnings that match up with a user’s skills. Job-seekers can use the system to find jobs in your industry.
As an employer, you have more choices with JobGatewaySM. With integrated search technology and the ability to share job postings via email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ (along with a unique feature called the Employer Questionnaire) JobGatewaySM is the perfect complement to your recruiting efforts.
I encourage you to consider JobGatewaySM as a way to help you find the right talent for your business by taking a few minutes to register your company and create a job-post.
