Hiring & Recruiting Employees

Chautauqua Works knows how difficult it is to find and identify qualified employees.  We offer a combination of services to fit your hiring needs. 

Post Your Job(s).  Advertise your job vacancies for FREE on JobCentral National Labor Exchange, as well as with job seekers and partners throughout western NY and our region including Pennsylvania.  To submit your job posting, choose from our options for Submitting Job Posting

Application Intake.  You can have Chautauqua Works listed as the contact point in your job postings so that the applicant traffic is handled at our site instead of dealing with disruptions at your place of business.  We can have applicants submit resumes and cover letters and/or fill out applications at our location.  You will have the option of using your company application or a generic application provided by Chautauqua Works.  We will also verify the identity of the applicants to ensure the applicant is the one completing the application. 

Pre-Screen Candidates.  You define the criteria (e.g. education level, work experience, work continuity, etc.), and we will screen the applications and/or resumes against those criteria.  All applications will be bundled and recorded on an excel spreadsheet in accordance with the criteria score each candidate received. 

Interview Space.  If your office space is limited or you simply want privacy to interview candidates, we have interview space available at no charge to you.

Targeted or General Job Fairs.  If you need a large number of employees at once, or assistance in increasing the diversity of your hiring pool, we offer planning assistance and coordination for your hiring events.
