The Dallas Regional Chamber (DRC) is connecting workers displaced by the COVID-19 crisis to thousands of available jobs in the Dallas Region. Emmitt Smith, NFL Hall-of-Famer and all-time leading rusher and DRC board member, will serve as the chief spokesman for the DRC’s “Connecting Displaced Workers to Jobs” platform. The online portal can be accessed on the DRC’s Say Yes to Dallas talent attraction campaign page by clicking here. Job listings are broken down by sector, including hospitals, pharmacies, grocery stores, food service, and warehouses.
The website offers listings to individuals who need:
Leads for in-demand jobs
Access to online courses to upskill into high-demand, well-paying jobs
Childcare resources for parents involved in essential work
Links to help workers to file for unemployment claims.
Job opportunities include nurses, pharmacy technicians, shelf stockers at grocers, and delivery drivers. The postings are updated in real-time, and the DRC is working in partnership with the workforce boards of Greater Dallas, Tarrant County, and North Central Texas to reach as many employer opportunities as possible. The Say Yes site continues to function as a resource for companies or individuals seeking to relocate to the Dallas Region.
The DRC jobs initiative was born out of an ongoing collaboration with leaders from the Dallas Citizens Council, Downtown Dallas Inc., and Visit Dallas in meetings earlier this month as the COVID-19 crisis began unfolding in Dallas.
Employers and workers who wish to learn more about how to post openings or seek positions should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
