The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership is asking employers to share workforce information through an online survey so that the partnership can assess what jobs are available throughout the county. The survey is asking Erie employers what positions are available right now and what they will be looking for in the next few years.
Officials say the county has around four or five thousand employers and if we can find a way to fill the positions they have available the economy and job market in Erie can be built up.
The other benefit of having this kind of program in place is said to be for potential employees to know what training and education they would need to secure a job in their field of interest.
