Santa Rosa Junior College Job Board

Connects Talent to Employers

 

Santa Rosa, CA - (March 2, 2017) Santa Rosa Junior College Career Technical Education (CTE) announces the deployment of TalentPond.org, a free online service designed to connect both the California Community College (CCC) system and CTE students seeking jobs to local employers.

 

TalentPond.org matches talent with employers based on exact skills needed and offered, using a database matching system based on industries and skills rather than ambiguous job titles.

 

“In 20 years of teaching, not a week goes by without an employer contacting the CCCs to ask for a student that has the skills to fulfill an open job in Sonoma County. The idea for TalentPond.org was born from this need,” says Mike Starkey, instructor and coordinator for the SRJC Digital Media Program. “We believe there are many missed job opportunities in California, due to employers and job seekers simply not finding each other.”

 

For further information, journalists are asked to contact Mike Starkey at mstarkey@santarosa.edu or (707) 527-4370.
