Our representatives can create a unique recruiting strategy to meet your company’s needs. We can arrange small-scale recruitments at any of our netWORKri career centers, or we can plan a largescale job fair for your business, your industry or your geographic area. Alternatively, if you are planning your own recruitment event, our staff can assist with intake, traffic management and other related tasks.
Once you place a job order with the Business Workforce Center, our representatives can help publicize your opening or recruitment through local media outlets. We can also create promotional materials for display at netWORKri and other local community-based organizations. If you choose, we can feature your job opening in our weekly listing of “Hot Jobs,” which is available on our web site and through a special Hot Jobs RSS feed.
Training improves worker retention and productivity, and can keep your business competitive in a global environment.

They can also connect you to On-the-Job Training (OJT) and customized training options offered through your local workforce investment board.
