NKY Chamber job board sees uptick, nonprofit, sales and marketing growing fast

Looking for a job? Northern Kentucky might have what you're looking for. The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce's online job board has recently seen an uptick in postings.

In August, there were more than 70 postings, with several employers looking to hire for multiple positions. The sectors seeing some of the largest growth are nonprofit, sales and marketing. Currently there are just over a dozen nonprofit postings including listings from Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission, the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati and the American Red Cross. There are at least eight marketing and 14 sales listings.

The job board has been around since 2002, and has served as a place where Chamber members, and other area employers, can post jobs for free, said Nancy Spivey, the Chamber's senior vice president, Workforce, Education & Health Care Solutions.

"We have been averaging about five new job postings daily, although I spoke with an employer (recently) who is sending me a posting and that employer needs several hundred workers," Spivey said.

There are nearly two dozen job categories on the board, ranging from education and construction to manufacturing and administrative work. There are also part time listings.

The Chamber job board is more than just an online classified department. There's also a student section with internship and co-op postings, information from local employers who offer education assistance, job fair notices and more.

Another handy service the Chamber offers through the site is a resume blast. The Chamber has a relationship with dozens of regional companies who have signed up to receive resumes from potential employees on a regular basis. Job seekers send their resumes to the Chamber, which in turn, sends them along to the companies. This service is also free.

"We find this especially helpful for individuals who may be moving to our region, for those who are seeking a general opportunity (in customer service, retail, etc.), and for employers who hire for various positions on a regular basis," Spivey said.
