(TNS) – There is a new place for businesses to look for workers and workers to look for jobs.
The Kentucky Chamber Foundation and the Workforce Center have created Kentucky Talent Hub, an online way to connect employers and job seekers.
It can be found at talenthubky.com.
An ad said the new site “comes at a critical time as federal unemployment insurance benefits expired in early September, Kentucky’s labor market participation rate is only 56.4% and it there are over 100,000 jobs open in the Commonwealth. “
The new site replaces “Who’s Hiring,” which the State Chamber launched earlier to help promote open positions across the state during the pandemic.
Between March 2020 and August 2021, Kentucky businesses posted more than 108,000 job openings on the site.
The announcement indicates that the new site is more user-friendly and automated.
Companies in any industry can post job vacancies of any kind – full-time, part-time, fair opportunities, freelancers and internships.
Employers can interact directly with candidates and their profiles.
Job seekers can create a profile to search and apply for jobs based on factors such as location, industry, highest degree required, fair employment, and more.
“Kentucky has many flagship industries, but talent is our biggest export,” said LaKisha Miller, executive director of the Kentucky Chamber Foundation Workforce Center, in a press release. “Kentucky Talent Hub will help connect Kentucky employers with the talent they need so that we can continue to grow and cultivate new opportunities for Kentuckians within our state.”
