Dual Career Program Launched

MM - 1

The Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce recognizes this and has created significant online and print resources to “sell” Manhattan to a variety of people considering moving to the Little Apple. You can check out some of these resources by going to madeformanhattan.org or contacting Amber Hutfles in our office.

However, we are very excited to be working on another project that will assist with recruiting families to Manhattan. The program is called Dual Career Support Program. The Chamber is working with Kansas State University on the program, aimed to help make career opportunities and resources accessible to transitioning spouses, partners or family members of newly hired employees in Manhattan.

The program utilizes a three-prong approach including providing a clear pathway for jobseekers to identify career opportunities; collecting information from job seekers through the Made for Manhattan portal; and working with existing Chamber programming to learn more about the community and make valuable and meaningful connections.

The program doesn’t guarantee employment but does provide resources and connections to opportunities.

We are hopeful that we can attract employers into the program that will agree to provide a priority review to forms submitted online through Made for Manhattan. Information submitted through the online portal will be sent in a report to participating employers weekly.

Employers and human resource professionals can learn more about the program and submit job seeker information here.

We believe this helps not only the transitioning family, but ultimately increases the pipeline of potential works for all participating employers. Thank you to Kansas State and those that have helped launch this program. We look forward to reporting results back to you soon.
