ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The Abilene Chamber of Commerce has spent six months fine-tuning a new job board website.
AbileneWorks is a free job portal to bring people to work in Abilene.
Right now, the chamber is pushing to keep former-military personnel and their skills, along with young professionals.
The website is free for Abilene businesses, with everything handled by the chamber.
“A lot of times if you’re searching for a job in Abilene, you would just Google, go to Facebook, LinkedIn, and you would be bombarded with jobs from all over. This is specifically for Abilene,” says Abilene Chamber of Commerce’s Laurin Kocurek.
In the future, the concept could be used in other communities.
