Abilene Chamber Helps Combat Unemployment Rate with Abilene-centric Job Portal

Last week, Workforce Solutions of West Texas announced over 4,100 employers in the region have been impacted by COVID-19 due to layoffs, reductions in hours or temporary or permanent closings. In order to help combat the local unemployment rate, the Abilene Chamber of Commerce encourages locals to find opportunity with the Abilene-centric job portal – abileneworks.com.

“Luckily, there are still businesses across the Abilene area who are in need of workers,” said Doug Peters, President & CEO of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce. “Your Chamber is working hard to pull those resources and job opportunities together so members of our local community whose jobs have been impacted by COVID-19 can get back up on their feet.”

Along with local job opportunities, the free community resource houses information from the U.S. Department of Labor, local resources for refreshing your resume, short-term hourly positions and more.

Employers can customize their active job posting dates and how jobseekers apply. Employers that post to AbileneWorks.com receive free job marketing as we reach across multiple markets, including exiting military, students, young professionals, and anyone else interested in being a part of the Abilene community.

Since 1908, the Abilene Chamber has served as a catalyst for business growth, a convener of leaders and influencers, and a champion for developing and promoting the economy and quality of life.
