The Lake George Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau has given its website, lakegeorgeishiring.com, a new look to offer features for both employers looking to post jobs and job seekers.
There is no cost for employers to post jobs on the website, officials said,which focuses on Warren County job openings specifically.
LakeGeorgeisHiring.com was developed in the summer of 2020 by Mannix Marketing of Glens Falls, with support from the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce, Lake George Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau, Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce, Warren County Tourism Department, Warren Employment and Training and Behan Communications.
“Recognizing the need to provide a single online location for employers and potential employees to see current opportunities, the LGRCVB accepted the task of continuing this collaborative project as part of its scope of community development,” said Gina Mintzer, Chamber executive director. “To support our partners and employers in their growing hiring needs, we are thrilled to share an updated job portal, which offers the opportunity for employers to create their own account profiles, maintain job listings, and add links to their own contacts and hiring pages.”
Currently more than 30 jobs are posted with approximately 20 employers.
The refreshed site includes an employer portal for managing company information, open positions, and links to website or email; and a job board organized by job category and location.
Categories include accounting, attractions, business services, customer service and reception, food and beverage, healthcare, housekeeping and maintenance, nonprofit and retail.
There is also information on the Lake George area for places to “work, stay and play,” and places to rent or buy in the region.
Opportunities from local employers include: on-site housing, sign-on incentives, bonuses and discounts.
The LGRCVB worked with Nolee-O Web Design to redesign the site and is embarking on an aggressive marketing campaign to target specific audiences in order to connect employers with prospective employees. This strategy includes both digital and traditional components.
The website also includes a link to indeed.com jobs in Warren County as well as the job boards of the Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce, Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce, New York State Job Bank and Craigslist.
The LGRCVB is a division of the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce and works as an extension of the Warren County Tourism Department. While the Tourism Department markets the Lake George Area to the leisure consumer tourism market, the mission of the LGRCVB is to bring year-round, weather-proof group business to Warren County in the form of meetings, conventions, reunions, sports events, weddings, and more.
