State Partners With Retail Industry To Fill Immediate Job Openings

March 30, 2020

The state of Tennessee, in partnership with the Tennessee Grocer and Convenience Store Association, Tennessee Retail Association, and Hospitality TN, has formed the Tennessee Talent Exchange powered by Jobs4TN.

The goal of the exchange is to quickly match Tennesseans who are out of work due to the COVID-19 health emergency with companies currently experiencing a surge in business.

Many workers, like those in Tennessee's hospitality industry, have been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 health emergency. Tennesseans are out of work, but there are still job opportunities available.

The Tennessee Talent Exchange powered by Jobs4TN is a public-private partnership aimed at putting as many Tennesseans to work as possible during this emergency.

Businesses that provide what are deemed essential services, such as grocers, convenience stores, and other retailers need extra employees right now to keep up with demand.

Job seekers can go to Tennessee's workforce development website to apply for jobs across the state. Once an individual submits an application, the exchange will send it to retail stores in their local area for consideration.

As the need for additional employees becomes apparent in different industries, the Tennessee Talent Exchange powered by Jobs4TN will expand to include other businesses with immediate job openings.
