Clarksville, TN – Tennessee Job Seekers a statewide jobs-growth initiative designed to connect unemployed Tennesseans through social media was launched today by Tennessee State Senator Mark Green.
The program calls on the state and local communities to lend support, experience and resources to those either recently laid off or Tennesseans that are unemployed or under employed.This initiative is for networking, marketing and information sharing. LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter are among the first avenues in helping people find jobs.
“Tennessee is always looking for ways to create jobs and we believe part of the answer lies in nurturing the small business community and engaging the use of social media,” said Mark Green, State Senator TN-22.
“When I learned that 300 workers at Hemlock Semiconductor in Clarksville were laid off, I knew we must act quickly,” said Green. “I remember the day my dad’s pay was cut in half after the loss of his arm. My idea is aimed at building a network to help unemployed Tennesseans. Tennessee Job Seekers is uniquely positioned to connect people to positions. We are calling on established avenues to direct their attention in this initiative,” said Senator Green.
“I have spoken to the Chamber of Commerce, where leaders were eager to help. Today I provided an update at Clarksville’s Rotary Club meeting. We will be tireless in getting the message out. Job Seekers may post their resumes to the site directly, and businesses can provide links to open jobs. If you are a business willing to help, please email me at or contact the Chamber leadership,” Green said.
