It’s no accident that Ramapo is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States, and we now have another reason to praise the efforts of the town and its leaders. Today, Supervisor Christopher P. St. Lawrence and the Ramapo Town Board launched The Ramapo Jobs Connector in order to boost local employment and enhance economic development.
A glimpse of The Ramapo Jobs Connector.
The Ramapo Jobs Connector is a free service, powered by TweetMyJobs, that allows job seekers to leverage social media to connect with employers in a fast, efficient way. A number of local companies have already partnered with the town by posting their jobs – including Crowne Plaza, Good Samaritan Hospital, Cablevision and many others.
According to Supervisor St. Lawrence, “By adopting new technology and leveraging social media to drive local employment solutions, ‘The Ramapo Jobs Connector’ presents a unique opportunity for local residents and local employers to connect, thereby fostering future job growth in the town and county.”
The town of Ramapo recognizes the impact that technology has on recruiting today, and launching this initiative confirms the town’s commitment to fighting unemployment.
He’s been ranked one of America’s “most social Mayors” for years – tweeting from his Blackberry and engaging in conversations with his constituents morning, noon and night. Today, Newark Mayor Cory A. Booker’s status as a forward looking, technology driven leader solidified even more as he announced the Newark Jobs Connect platform.
The platform distributes more than 35,000 available jobs across the digital landscape and matches job seekers with employers through social media, email and mobile technologies to addresses the long term unemployment issue in Newark. In addition to the technological advantages, seekers have access to a variety of career resources to help them throughout the searching, networking, and interview process.
According to Mayor Booker, “Residents of Newark will directly benefit by hearing about available jobs before anyone else and Newark employers will be able to reach qualified, local candidates fast and first.”
This initiative firmly places the Mayor and the City of Newark boldly out front in their commitment to create job opportunities for their citizens using the best tools in the marketplace. We’re thrilled to launch newark.tweetmyjobs.com with Mayor Booker and power the Newark Jobs Connect platform.
