Taking a Stand: Job Link

By Vice-President/General Manager Debbie Bush

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The unemployment rate in our area ranges from about 8 to 12%.

Here at 14WFIE, we'd like to help put people back to work. That is why we're introducing a new initiative called Job Link.

Our goal is to match employers with open jobs to those Tri-Staters looking for employment. 

Recently we've seen a number of businesses announce expansions like Berry Plastics in Evansville and U.S. Bank in Owensboro and the announcement of a new coal gasification plant in Rockport.  

We've also heard about a number of stimulus packages for our area.        

You've seen these stories prominently placed in our newscasts and that will continue with a Job Link alert.         

You'll also see stories about how to refresh your resume and other tips to help you find the right job.

On our website, you'll find a place to post your resume and you can also browse job openings that were posted by local companies in our area.

Starting Monday, we'll have some of those employers live in our studio, taking your calls about their open jobs.      

To find out more be sure to tune into 14 News.     

To respond to this editorial, send an e-mail or call 812-253-0107.  You can send a letter to me at: Debbie Bush, WFIE-TV, and P.O. Box 1414, Evansville, IN 47701.
