Employment Resources During COVID-19

Talent Connection

Connecting job seekers with employers

Talent Connection

The Chamber’s Talent Connection initiative connects companies in need of immediate temporary workers with talent who are looking for work due to circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are tracking companies that are looking to rapidly hire for open positions and will provide up-to-date information relating to State and Federal assistance programs.

While we recognize that the impacts of COVID-19 are far-reaching, we also know some businesses are scaling up their workforce due to new or increased areas of need as a result of this changing economic environment. The Chamber is here to help.

Are you looking for temporary employment?

Job Seekers

Are you looking for temporary help or to rapidly upscale your workforce?

Employers

The Chamber has created a tracking list where job seekers can quickly find information on employers actively looking to hire. To be added to this list, contact Suzi Raiford, AVP Career Programs, at sraiford@charlestonchamber.org and provide the following information:

– Company Name
– Company Contact (Name, Email, Phone)
– Number of Job Openings
– List of Needed Job Skills
– Link to Apply

You may also consider utilizing a staffing agency to assist you in your immediate hiring needs. As we work together to navigate the many challenges the COVID-19 pandemic creates, leveraging a staffing company to hire temporary workers can help you respond to your business’ needs in a rapid and efficient manner.
