"Area employers tell us they are hiring and they're asking for help to locate great job candidates. Jobless numbers tell the story of the fallout from the pandemic and we know people need jobs right now. We hope this free service will connect people with new employment opportunities as quickly as possible," says Christy Gillenwater, President and CEO, Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce.
At the pandemic's onset the Chattanooga Chamber listed resources and job listings on its main website, ChattanoogaChamber.com. The new site offers more jobs and information and is easy to access, use and keep current.
"Creating meaningful education opportunities and connecting talent to hiring companies in the area are two top-level priorities for us. This is part of the Chattanooga Chamber's priority to promote employment and training opportunities in our own backyard, while also creating an inclusive economy for our residents," Gillenwater says.
Job seekers will find resources and tools including:
* A robust jobs board
* Training programs for advanced manufacturing, health care, information technology and transportation and logistics
* Information on how easy it is to work remotely in Chattanooga
The jobs board features open jobs in Chattanooga. The training information pages give details on area programs that education institutions offer, as well as data on earning potential and job availability – two key factors in helping to inspire career change. Some website pages also feature information in Spanish.
"ChattanoogaCalling.com brings education and training opportunities together in one easy-to-find spot," says Molly Blankenship, Chattanooga 2.0 Executive Director and VP, Talent Initiatives, Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce. "We hope job seekers will use this resource to find work fast. We care about their future and want to help in the easiest and most strategic ways possible."
