Chamber President to Provide Talent2Work Tutorial at Third Thursday Business Builder
Join the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce and President Sue Parr on Thursday, May 20 for a tutorial on the new Talent2Work platform, designed to provide employers a more efficient means of finding talent as well as provide job seekers an opportunity to connect with top employers. This demonstration will educate our business community on ways to maximize visibility and stand out as a featured employer through this platform, while partnering with the Augusta Metro Chamber.
Talent2Work allows jobseekers to explore careers, build a resume, view popular jobs in the Greater Augusta area, learn about local companies and take online training to build employment skills and resume. The Talent2Work platform also connects employers with job seekers in our area. As an employer, you will have access to job seeker resumes and training results. Talent2Work will match your jobs to interested candidates.
Through the creation of the Business Education Advisory Council, the Augusta Metro Chamber has been able to support workforce development in our region. The Council pinpoints ways in which the business community can support the Richmond County School System in three key goal areas including higher graduation rates, academic achievement, and local workforce development. Talent2Work is a new workforce initiative of this committee and the Chamber. Featured presenter Sue Parr, IOM, GCCE is President and CEO of the Augusta Metro Chamber. Sue became President of the Augusta Metro Chamber in 2005 but has been involved in chamber work for several years prior to her moving into the top spot.
