Pandemic-era issues are affecting business communities across the world. Employers are turning to age-old practices to solve new programs to limited success. That’s where the Vermilion Economic Development Alliance (VEDA) comes in. VEDA has launched an online community job board to help local companies connect with Vermilion Parish jobseekers.
“Our recent visits with the local community have reinforced our assumptions. Workforce recruitment remains a chief concern for many of our Vermilion Parish businesses. We are hoping a central location like our community job board will help attract talent and match them with local opportunities,” says Anne Falgout, VEDA Executive Director.
The new online job board is featured among VEDA’s other workforce development efforts. There, employers and jobseekers can find useful tools and make meaningful connections. Visit www.vermilionatwork.com for a list of local job opportunities or to advertise available positions at your business.
