The Workforce Development Board, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida Counties, Inc. (WDB HMO), is hosting a website called “Connect Mohawk Valley” that allows local businesses to post their internships and part-time job opportunities for students for free.
The WDB’s Connect Mohawk Valley site provides significant benefits to both employers and students. It is a convenient vehicle for businesses to get the word out about their opportunities at no cost, while students attending area schools can view and apply to them in one central repository.
To sign up, a business simply goes to www.connectmohawkvalley.com and clicks the “Sign Up” button located on the top right of the page. A simple form is provided, and once submitted is quickly approved so that the employer can begin posting their opportunities immediately. When a student applies to the opportunity, a notification is sent to the employer by email. The employer can log in to add or change opportunities at any time.
The website also offers students handy resources, such as tips on interviewing, business etiquette, networking and more. The website has a category for apprenticeships as well.
As an added benefit we also post the employer’s opportunities on our social media, which includes our Connect Mohawk Valley Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ConnectMV/
and our Connect Mohawk Valley Twitter account: https://twitter.com/connect_mv
We also utilize these online resources to help get the word out about news, events and other opportunities from our partners and other Mohawk Valley businesses and organizations.
