Introducing The Whether

by Adrienne Sharp | Mar 03, 2017

St. Louis is aching for talent. A couple of years ago, a survey of students from 14 regional institutions highlighted the gap between the student’s perception of available career opportunities and the reality of St. Louis’ job market. Jobs are left unfilled because job seekers don’t know they’re available or think their skills are applicable. How do we better connect talent to careers in the region?

The St. Louis Regional Chamber is proud to introduce a new talent solution designed to answer this question. Better Weekdays’ tool, The Whether, aggregates internships and job opportunities posted by employers for job seekers to navigate based on their resumes. Think of it as a dating site for careers. Employers and job seekers sign up to get to know each other better and hopefully lead to a happy match. With this system, applicants can discover new opportunities they wouldn’t have seen elsewhere. Employers are also able to discover and streamline their search for relevant candidates.

But how does The Whether work for job seekers? Read about this student's experience with The Whether and how it made her job search easier. 

St. Louis has opportunities for everyone; it’s just a matter of letting the world know of them. With The Whether, Better Weekdays is working to make St. Louis a more attractive place to live, work, play, and invest.
