PRESS RELEASE

TCD UNVEILS new ‘CommunityLINK’ & Job Posting Website
www.wehavejobs.net
It’s our community…get into it!
Special Preview, Mon, July 30th, 2007 Harms Tech Center

Twin Cites Development is excited to preview our new “CommunityLINK’ and job posting website. This website will be used for community promotion and workforce recruitment to the area. When TCD met with business and industry leaders in Nov. 2006, it was apparent that the need for additional workforce had become an issue for many area employers.



In the past, TCD has worked with local businesses to expand and create new jobs. This work has resulted in considerable growth and success…to the point that the community needs to bring in additional hard-working, skilled employees to fill these newly created positions. In response, Twin Cities Development hired a full time Employee Recruitment Manager, Darla Heggem, and created the CommunityLINK website. This website provides a link to the community for everyone. The following ‘links’ are provided with information to help people ‘get connected’ to our community:

  • Newcomer’s Link– to hook up utilities, find a house, daycare, license/register car
  • Education Link – Link to all schools and educational opportunities
  • Healthcare Link – Link to all healthcare services and professionals.
  • Economic Development Link – Link to TCD & other development organizations.
  • Chamber of Commerce Link-Link to the Chamber and Events Calendar
  • Travel & Hospitality Link – Link to the airport, transportation choices, hotels & tourism.
  • Media Link – Link to local news and our community video.

Several other links are provided on the website. The most important is the Jobs Link, the impetus for the website. To enhance the recruiting portion, we have contracted with the AIM Institute of Omaha to provide a back end data base for our site, containing all of the job posting information. This information will also be posted on Careerlink.com. The Jobs Link will serve as a ‘One-Stop’ job listing service for Scottsbluff/Gering and the surrounding TCD communities from Morrill to Bridgeport. For a nominal fee, we will post all available jobs in the community for any TCD business member. All jobs will be marketed on a local, regional and national level. Using Careerlink.com, we will be able to reach multiple colleges, universities, job fairs, as well as reach a national audience. Additionally, we have access to their resume database to match specific job seekers to employers in the area. This website, once marketed could become a powerful tool for our area businesses to recruit workforce to the area. Join us for the special preview of the website launch Monday July 30th, 2:00 pm.
