Online chat to assist Hamilton Co. residents in employment services

(FOX19) - Hamilton County residents struggling in the tough economy can learn about employment services and workforce development in an online chat with Hamilton County's Department of Job and Family Services.

The chat is an opportunity for job seekers to ask questions about local opportunities, workers to learn about assistance that will help them move up the career ladder and employers to explore what the county's Super Jobs program can offer them in terms of filling open positions.

Kevin Holt, a manager in the county's Workforce Development section, will be online from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 9.

"Many people are out of work right now or are working but feel as if they want more," said Moira Weir, director of the department. "Likewise, employers need people with specific skills for some tough-to-fill positions. We can help in all these areas and this is a good opportunity to learn what we have to offer."
