Need workers? We can help!
If you are an employer in the trade/technical or tourism and hospitality industry, we can help you build your workforce! Next month, there will be a plethora of Class of '23 high school seniors from throughout the region searching to find a workplace to call home and contribute to our local economy. Many of these students will have received skills, training, and certifications to fill entry-level positions within your organization. Others are eager and motivated to learn and grow as a trainee, all bringing potentially new and innovative ways to contribute to your company’s overall success. Often, high school seniors who are college/military bound receive praise in ceremonies to recognize their accomplishments. We believe it is valuable to support all pathways that lead to the success of our local workforce and economy, so we want to shine a light on these students who will fill entry-level positions and the employers willing to take a chance on them!
After a successful pilot in 2022, four local companies were matched with desirable student candidates, ultimately, hiring ten area students that continue to work for and contribute to the success of their organizations. Let’s keep this growing!
On June 22, 2023, the Tri-City Regional Chamber, and our partners, Inland Northwest General Contractors, and the ESD123, will host the second annual Tri-Cities Regional Career Signing Day event, which will take place at Tri-Tech Skills Center. Signing Day Employer participants will have the opportunity to meet with desirable student candidates and provide on-site interviews before the Signing Day event. Finally, once student candidate finalists have been selected, the employer and candidate finalists will join to be recognized publicly by local educators, parents, community members, elected officials, and potentially news media as the shining stars who contribute to our local workforce and economy.
For more information or to learn how to participate as a Signing Day Employer Participant, please contact the Chamber’s Workforce and Education Manager, Brooke Myrland, at 509-491-3242 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
