With hundreds of jobs needing filled across the county, there’s no excuse for not finding job postings, thanks to the Preble County Development Partnership’s job portal, which is available for Preble County employers to post their open positions.
Preblecountycareers.com is one of several job portals in the state created on Small Nation’s Hometown Opportunity platform. According to officials, Hometown Opportunity is “an online workforce development platform created for counties, municipalities and regional areas to help tackle their workforce shortage issues head-on.”
The goal of Preble County Careers is to ensure individuals in the community and surrounding area are aware of the jobs and careers available to them here in Preble County.
PCDP Economic Development Director Brenda Latanza and Preble County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Leslie Collins attended the Hometown Opportunities User Conference on Friday, June 25. The full-day conference brought together the organizations and communities using the Hometown Opportunities platform, and was designed to help the communities utilize the platform “to its greatest potential.”
Marketing the site’s availability to local employers and jobseekers is one key to keeping homegrown talent at home. “All the careers listed on preblecountycareers.com are located in Preble County,” Latanza stressed at its launch in late 2019. “Our mission is to connect job seekers of all ages with local businesses. We are also focusing heavily at steering high school students, college students and adults toward the appropriate training and/or education that can lead to a career that is available right here, right now,” Latanza said.
