Are you looking for a job? Do you have a position to fill?

DavieWorks.com may be the answer.

Davie Connect’s online employment portal connects Davie County employers and job seekers with recruiting, training, and career resources in Davie County.

DavieWorks.com was created to connect people to the specific resources and services that can help them find employment or for businesses to shine a spotlight on the positions they are trying to fill,” said Carolyn McManamy, director of Davie Connect and the creator of DavieWorks.com. “It is meant to serve as a one-stop-shop by providing access to a wide range of employment resources, including online job search engines, local job listings, and career and training tools one may need in the job recruitment process.”

“Davie County businesses are open and looking for workers. The portal is a way for them to share the jobs they have available and for job seekers locally and beyond to see what is available here. DavieWorks.com is a great resource for those who may have lost their job due to Covid-19,” she said.

McManamy said that while anyone can apply for a position, only Davie County employers can post positions on the Local Jobs Posting page.

“Recruiting continues to be competitive even in the current circumstances. Our goal is to support our local businesses by providing them with an opportunity for direct recruitment and to cultivate a local workforce.”

In addition to jobs posted directly by local employers, the portal includes links to six popular online job sites and five local employment agencies.

Whether a new graduate surveying options or an experienced worker considering a change, DavieWorks.com has the resources needed for researching and evaluating careers, she said. Check out Edge Factor and explore dozens of career fields through informational videos and learn soft skills, browse local training options, including CTE programs, postsecondary, and apprenticeships. Look at College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC.org) for career information and tools such as resume building that help candidates prepare for the job they want.

There is also a tab for upcoming job fairs. Although not many job fairs are going on, there are listings for future events as well as drive-thru fairs being held by specific employers and recruiters.

McManamy summed it up this way. “There are a lot of really good opportunities in Davie County for great careers and DavieWorks.com is meant to help connect people to them.”

Davie Connect is a local workforce initiative designed to connect businesses to resources and kids to careers and to provide innovative workforce solutions for Davie County.
