Greater Peoria Works connects employers, students

Greater Peoria Works is a free online job-posting tool designed to connect students with internship and job shadowing opportunities.  By participating in Greater Peoria Works, business can:

  • Make an Impact: Simply, students don't know what they don't know. Students need businesses and organization representatives to act as mentors, providing critical guidance to a student during one of the most formative times in their life.
  • Build Your Brand: As students often lack insight into the breadth and depth of opportunities available in Greater Peoria, your company is poised to become a leader in providing career development opportunities to students while you build your visibility in the community.
  • Grow Your Own: Connecting with high school students provides your company the opportunity to strategically address your own workforce gaps. Essentially, your company can create a farm system to identify, train, and recruit your future workforce.

The Greater Peoria Economic Development Council offers seminars to introduce the program to employers on the fourth Tuesday of each month, 10 - 11 a.m., 101 SW Water St. Employers can bring mobile devices to walk through the program during the presentation.
