Workforce Center's Gets New Website

Posted: Updated:

With technology at our fingertips, many of us turn to the Internet for information. That's why one area agency is making changes to one of its biggest resources.

Ken Reeves has been in and out of the Workforce Center three times in the last two weeks.

I've been on a job search now for a little while," said Reeves.

He's also a user of their virtual service, which is now sporting a new look. 

"These two portals, one for the employers, one for the jobseekers are new," said Amanda Bawn. "We had them on the old website, but it's just easier to find, and the information is just more organized and easier to find."

Amanda Bawn says the change is an effort to keep up with the times.

"The number one thing you'll see on the website is a new look," explained Bawn. "Right now it's obviously full screen where our previous site was a small portion of the screen and today's monitors are a lot bigger than before."

There are also links to social media. "We're on Face book and Twitter, so if you go to our page you click us and like us right there," said Bawn. 

They're not the only ones turning to social media. There's groups popping up on Facebook, like this one called Bay County Hiring, used to spread the word of local places that are hiring.

The Workforce site is so fresh, Reeves has yet to see it, but he already thinks it's great.

"The current website is very good now so if there's a new one, if it gets better, that's going to help the search to be a whole lot easier," said Reeves.

The website is still taking some time to get to every server, therefore, it is possible you could be connected to the old one at this time.
