Snohomish County launches job search site with local focus

SnoCoWork.com is a free resource for area businesses and residents seeking work during the pandemic.

EVERETT — Snohomish County has launched a new website to connect local employers and residents out of work amid the coronavirus pandemic.

SnoCoWork.com, which went live last week, is free for local companies and job seekers, according to a county news release. Anyone looking for a job in the county can browse postings from area employers, create a profile, upload resumes and apply for positions.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted our business community and caused a significant increase in unemployment. This new tool, SnoCoWork, will be one of the ways to set us down a path toward economic and employment recovery,” County Executive Dave Somers said in the release.

Brier-based Southam Creative developed the online portal, paid with federal CARES Act funding, says the news release.

The project was recommended by the Snohomish County Economic and Workforce Recovery Task Force. Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert also pushed to create the platform to promote open jobs at a local industrial center and other businesses in the city.

“There are many positions available in Arlington, and the success we’ve had in creating an economic development zone in the Cascade Industrial Center is only fueling opportunities,” Tolbert said in the release. “It is important that our workforce is exposed to and has access to these career choices, not just in Arlington, but across the county.”

WorkSource, a partnership of state and local agencies that assists job seekers, also runs a jobs bulletin for Snohomish County. Local businesses can post jobs for free online at worksourceonline.com.
