    BROOKLYN CHAMBER ANNOUNCES CREATION OF NEW JOB RECRUITMENT SERVICES PROGRAM

    BROOKLYN CHAMBER ANNOUNCES CREATION OF NEW JOB RECRUITMENT SERVICES PROGRAM

    Today, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce announced the creation of the Brooklyn Chamber Recruitment Services program, which will be supported by NYC Business Solutions and Good Help.

    The Brooklyn Chamber Recruitment Services program will provide exceptional recruitment services free of charge to businesses of all kinds, throughout the borough. Whether an existing business is expanding its operation or opening an additional location, or a new business is just beginning, Brooklyn Chamber Recruitment Services can help find and cultivate the proper candidate with the right skills for the job.

    The program will offer an array of services, including aiding owners with advertising the positions, drafting job descriptions, identifying, screening and interviewing applicants, presenting the best candidates to the businesses for final consideration, and determining the right salary. Interview space can also be provided for businesses that require it.

    “The Brooklyn Chamber Recruitment Services program will be the premier, one-stop-shop for businesses looking to fill open jobs," said Chamber President and CEO Carlo A. Scissura. "This will be a full-service recruitment program that won't stop until the right person is placed with the right position. Not only will we be helping Brooklynites find jobs and Brooklyn businesses fill them, but we will also be saving owners both time and money by assisting them in making the best choice possible.”

    “The Brooklyn Chamber Recruitment Services Program will assist Brooklyn businesses and entrepreneurs to find the right staff and compete in today’s fast-paced world,” said Chamber Board Chair Denise Arbesu. “The Chamber knows both sides of the equation – the great employers as well as the good employees – so this is a natural fit.”  

    “The Brooklyn Chamber Recruitment Services team has been extremely instrumental in securing top candidates to a variety of open positions within Fit4Life,” said Maurelhena Walles, Executive Director of Fit4Life. “The support and trust I have in knowing that they will find a candidate that fits right into the role, as well as the company culture, is at 110 percent. They assisted in filling roles such as Administrative Assistants, After-School Instructors, After-School Coordinators, Human Resources Coordinator, and Office Manager. I am very happy and satisfied with the team at Brooklyn Chamber Recruitment Services.”

    Fit4Life is a reliable, high-quality organization offering engaging physical fitness programming for its scholars. The programs were developed due to schools cutting back on recess and physical education classes. The sports, dance, fitness, and martial arts programs focus on boosting a child’s self-confidence, maximizing the amount of time a child moves, minimizing competition and promoting a lifetime of activity.

    The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is the foremost resource for doing business in Brooklyn, respected as a leader in advancing public policy, new technologies, products, services and programs that support and promote a vibrant local economy. Its mission is to promote a healthy and robust business environment throughout Brooklyn. The chamber is the foremost economic development leader for the Borough of Brooklyn.
