Website provides Katrina evacuees with employment assistance

(Columbia) Sept. 21, 2005 - The next big hurtle for Columbia’s Gulf Coast hurricane transplants is finding employment.

The Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce has launched an interactive website, making the process a little easier. The online database can be launched from the GCCC website www.columbiachamber.com or visited directly at www.ColumbiaKatrinaJobs.com.

The website was designed and donated by The Rackes Group. The site features "Find a Job" and "Find an Employee" functions.

Employers can enter a description of the skills they seek and employees can post their skills and qualifications. A match will be made on common attributes.

A Microsoft Word document of the prospective job or candidate can be generated and delivered via e-mail or by hand if necessary when new postings are submitted. Job seekers living in hotels without internet access will be assisted with on-line registration and postings.
