Many communities have created their own job boards designed to keep people working as close to home as possible, and to battle brain drain in today’s tight labor market. In Lubbock, the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance has it’s own version, complete with promoted social media hashtags #LubbockLeads, #StayinLBK, and #LiveLoveLubbock. They even have a unique URL: www.Lubbock.is/hiring.
Lately they have capitalized on graduation season to feature local opportunities with a social media campaign that features entry level jobs in a different field every Tuesday and Thursday. You can see a screenshot of one of the postings here. It’s one way to draw in the right people at the right time so your local jobs board isn’t just a billboard in the wilderness.
