Growing Our Workforce Development Programs

Posted on 02/22/2021 at 09:04 AM by Dan Culhane

One of the most common insights we hear from our members is their need for talent. As part of our partnership with the City of Boone and our own workforce development programming, the Chamber has recently launched expanded platforms for our community job board and Future Ready youth programming.

Many of you are familiar with WorkInAmes.com, our longstanding community job board. This month we are pleased to expand the site to include WorkInBooneIA.com, offering free talent search services to businesses in Boone and the opportunity for job seekers to create a profile that showcases their resume and contact information for employers. We are confident this initiative will be a vital resource for employers and job seekers in the years to come.

Our Future Ready programming has also been expanded to include Boone Community School District along with the seven Story County school districts. In addition to the career exploration resources on our website, we are also working to connect our members with high school classes to collaborate on work-based projects, internship and tour opportunities and more. If you're interested in learning more or partnering, visit our website to sign up. It's never too early to start recruiting the next generation of workforce!

As always, never hesitate to contact me, or a member of our team, if we can do something more to promote and advocate for your business or organization.

I have been hired as the employment specialist with Yss. I have spoken with Brenda and Julie so please let me know how I can continue to stay involved and connected. We have a recording studio in Nevada where we could put together presentations and I am working with professors to arrange guest presentations or learning platforms. I have taught at DMAAC and Iowa State so I feel I have contacts that could help us. Brenda and I are both on the Sccan team. Look forward to working with all of you . Thank you for all that you all do! We have an amazing Chamber!!!!
