MONROE — The Union County Chamber of Commerce, with the aide of local manufacturers, is promoting job and career opportunities within the County through a billboard campaign on US 74.
A billboard near Rocky River Road encourages job seekers to find local jobs by searching the Chamber’s jobs site. There is also a digital billboard at the exit off the Monroe Expressway in Stallings. It rotates through messages from eight Union County manufacturers.
Both boards will remain up through the end of January, according to a report from the Chamber.
All Chamber members can add open positions to the jobs website.
Another way the Chamber helps organizations grow is through educational workshops.
In November, The Chamber hosted a free workshop for Chamber member nonprofits.
Jeni Bukolt, owner of HAVEN Creative, shared communication strategies to help members grow their nonprofits. At the interactive workshop, she provided workbooks to attendees to help them clarify their message and and stand out in the marketplace.
Attendees, including Jesse Granger with Council on Aging in Union County were grateful for the knowledge shared, “I loved that the suggestions were rooted in science, and that the speaker explained her practices,” Granger said in a release.
Cindy Cole with Community Health Services, said: “The speaker was so uplifting and knowledgeable! She offered so many great communication strategies.”
