How Can we Grow our Local Workforce?
The answer may be this simple: let’s provide our college students with summer employment and/or internships to raise awareness of the varied job opportunities and advantages of living and working in our area.
Please complete this quick survey about what employment opportunities may already exist or if your business would be willing to start a summer work/internship program for our college students.
We want our local college students to have employment here this summer. Help us share with them the work opportunities available for the summer!
The Chamber is coordinating efforts with the West Kentucky Workforce Board and Four Rivers Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) to compile a comprehensive list of job opportunities. This list will be distributed to the Career Services Departments at area colleges and universities and available on the Chamber’s website for distribution to college students. We will then connect the interns through the Paducah Chamber Intern Initiative with other interns, Paducah Young Professionals and community events.
Unsure about how to start an internship or summer work: a webinar is being offered on Thursday, March 11 at 9 a.m. in partnership with the Workforce Board and local SHRM chapter to provide more details.
