Jackson County's Chamber of Commerce is still working hard to find new jobs for recently laid off workers. The Chamber is using the Internet to connect businesses with job openings, to laid off employees.
So far more than one hundred workers have logged onto the Chamber's web site and listed their resumes. Companies then go to the site to find an employee that matches their needs. "This is the electronic equivalent to a job fair, that is a living document that we continue to add to it, we do it every week. And in those cases where people find employment we delete those records as well," said Terry Carter with the Chamber of Commerce.
