Running a successful business is complex in any economy. In today’s world, employers and business owners face unique challenges from recruiting and hiring employees to developing realistic goals and strategies for growing their business.
Whether you are a corporation looking for talented staff for your organization, an entrepreneur writing your first business plan, or a small business owner seeking new marketing ideas, Jewish Community Services (JCS) has the resources to help you achieve your business goals.
Business Development Services
Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community. JCS recognizes the challenges that individual entrepreneurs face in getting they expert advice and support they need to start, save, or grow their businesses. JCS offers two programs for small business owners to give them the “Board of Directors”-type guidance they need to make their business as successful as possible.
Business and Entrepreneur MeetUp
JCS sponsors a local idea exchange and support group for local business owners and entrepreneurs. This unique environment, facilitated by a small business growth and entrepreneurship expert, allows you to bounce ideas off others and get opinions and comments in a positive environment.
Business Mentors and small business start up advice is available through the JCS Center for Business Development. Mentors can help you analyze your target market, increase your presence in the community, help you analyze your profitability, and refer you to other appropriate resources and contacts.
Ask any business owner or manager to list the top challenges they face, and inevitably you will hear “finding the talent” to take my business to the next level. At JCS, we often hear from employers who feel they have wasted too much time sifting through an avalanche of resumes from job applicants whose qualifications do not match the advertised employment opportunity. And then there are the groans about the high cost of placing those “help wanted” ads!
JCS assists employers with recruiting and finding qualified employees who meet the specific needs of their business, at no cost to the employer.
Listing a position with JCS couldn’t be easier. You can submit the information on-line or by telephone and one of our Employment Specialists will work closely with you to find the right match from among our Career Services clients. We only refer candidates who meet the requirements for the job.
In our “Featured Candidates” section, we invite you to view profiles and resumes of some of our clients currently seeking employment. If you see someone who might be a good match for your organization, we’ll be happy to provide you with more information about the candidate or assist in arranging an interview.
In addition to our recruitment and hiring assistance, JCS can also provide employers with professional outplacement services for displaced workers, at competitive market rates.
