Suffolk Economic Development Rolls Out Workforce Communication Tool

In response to the rapidly changing economic climate with COVID-19, Suffolk Economic Development Department has created an online resource aimed to support job seekers.

The new online directory, found on the www.YesSuffolk.com homepage, features Suffolk and surrounding area businesses who are currently hiring and looking to fill open positions.  Special emphasis is placed on job openings that are entry-level and above.

The Department is now actively encouraging the Greater Suffolk business community to supply current employment status information.  The information will populate the directory tool, which will be updated regularly.

All businesses that are actively recruiting and would like to be included, please reach out by Email to: Terry A. Smith, Suffolk Economic Development, at Tasmith@suffolkva.us, or call 757-514-4045. Click here to access the guide.
