As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce is saddened by the number of Chamber businesses that have had to let go of staff and downsize their operations in order to survive. We pride ourselves in being a pillar in the community and a resource for businesses. We know we have a role to pay in the recovery of our economy and are eager to offer support to jobseekers, many of whom have become our friends and meaningful contacts in the community.
On November 1, the Chamber will launch Power Professionals. This program was formed to support people who have been taken out of the workforce due to furloughs and lay-offs and will be a resource for individuals looking for employment. By providing trainings, workshops, networking opportunities, resource boards and more, the LAX Coastal Chamber will work to help connect jobseekers with trainings that include topics like, “Redefining your brand,” “Your 30-second pitch,” “How to use LinkedIn as a job searching tool,” and “What is your dream job?” As part of this program we will be creating a Job Board that will allow Chamber members to post jobs and jobseekers to search available career opportunities (both the government and private sector) in and around the LAX Coastal area and the Resource Board will include information on building your resume, starting a business or learning a new trade.
The Chamber is a place where businesses go to connect and collaborate. We are looking beyond our businesses to support individuals seeking employment to help strengthen their circles of influence and polish their networking skills. For a small month to month fee of $25, individuals will have access to the benefits of the Chamber and the resources of Power Professional.
