Pearland Launches WorkInPearland, a New Workforce Initiative

Pearland, Texas — WorkInPearland, Pearland’s Virtual Job Board and Resource Center, which connects employers to Pearland’s talented and educated workforce through job postings, regional training programs and workforce support services, launched on March 15th. This immersive and interactive website was developed through a partnership between the Pearland Economic Development Corporation (PEDC) and the Pearland Chamber of Commerce.

Job seekers can register to view local jobs, regional training programs, workforce support services, and workforce ecosystem partners in the region all year round. Area businesses can showcase their organization and career opportunities to the community through a customizable virtual booth.

“This website is free to both Pearland-based employers and all job seekers irrespective of their residency,” stated Pearland Mayor Kevin Cole. “WorkInPearland is a place where you can find your next career move to work right here in Pearland.”

Within the first week of its launch more than 150 job seekers visited the 40+ employer booths currently showcased in the platform. There are nearly 150 jobs posted on the platform from a variety of industries and this list of participating employers and jobs is growing daily. There will be two enhanced ‘live” interaction days planned for the year, where candidates are able to meet and network in real time with employers, attend workshops and webinars and participate in virtual scavenger hunts and contests. The first “live” day is scheduled for May 4th, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

“Work in Pearland will provide individuals the opportunity to explore careers available in Pearland and serve as an ongoing resource for residents and businesses,” stated Jim Johnson, President and CEO, Pearland Chamber of Commerce.
