With an unemployment rate of 3.1% and many of our employers struggling to find enough people, growing our talent pool is vital to our economic success. No matter how many incentives we offer a company, if they can’t find workers, they won’t come. That’s why our new strategy focuses so heavily on workforce development, and that’s why we’re creating the Wichita Falls Talent Partnership.
The next step in the process is to hire a director for the Partnership. We’re looking for someone who can bring together a diverse group of stakeholders and push them forward to create effective programs. We need a facilitator, a communicator, a leader. Someone who can serve as the face of the initiative. Is this you? If so, send your cover letter, resume, and references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
