New Web site provides high-tech help for Northeast Ohio job seekers and employers
Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Cleveland, Ohio — May 27, 2009 — A new Web site, WhereToFindHelp.org, has been launched to help people find jobs and help employers find employees and secure training for them. It also will help individuals who need re-training to be more competitive in today’s job market.
WhereToFindHelp.org is designed to answer the question: “Where is the one place that has resources for finding a job or potential employees?” While the site doesn’t yet fulfill the goal of being a complete directory, it is designed as a wiki (a Web site that allows users to add and update content on the site using their own Web browser). The site will allow Northeast Ohio organizations that assist job seekers or employers to easily add their information and resources and explain how they can help and how people needing their services can contact them.
Dave Shute, RTN’s project director, emphasized that the online directory is a work-in-progress. “The success of WhereToFindHelp.org will depend, in part, on the willingness of the service providers of Northeast Ohio to add their content. This online tool, which service providers can edit and update themselves, is the perfect way to showcase and make accessible the complex talent development system of Northeast Ohio to the people and employers who need its help.”
The site is sponsored by the Regional Talent Network (RTN), a collaboration among the Fund for Our Economic Future, the State of Ohio, and the metropolitan chambers of commerce of Northeast Ohio: the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Stark Development Board, the Greater Akron Chamber, the Greater Cleveland Partnership, and the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber. The RTN’s purpose is to improve the region’s ability to prepare residents for jobs and to fill high-demand positions.
The RTN is inviting organizations that serve employers, job seekers, people seeking training, and those currently employed who want to build or improve their skills to add information to WhereToFindHelp.org.
