Political hopeful offers practical help to jobseekers

| 25/02/2009

(CNS): Bodden Town candidate Sandra Catron is taking direct action to help her would-be constituents who are out of work reverse that situation. Catron’s electoral committee announced that the candidate has added a job seekers’ page to her website www.sandracatron.com where Caymanians looking for work can post their CV’s. Catron explained that the idea was a direct result of the number of requests that she receives from local people seeking employment.

“On average I have about two persons per week that approach me about assisting them in finding a job. I am now using the available technology to market these persons and the skills that they have, ”she said.

Catron feels passionately about the fact that qualified and hardworking Caymanians should have job opportunities in their own country that boosts about 30,000 work permit holders. She noted that was a substantial amount and indicates that unemployment should almost be nil. However, she said that at least her website could help some people with better exposure.

Using her existing website and extensive email database as additional tools for candidates has already proven successful for job seekers.

“The formula here is simple – we have Caymanians seeking employment and it occurred to me some time ago to setup an entire website that would be an Employment Center dedicated to bringing together employers and employees,” she added.

However, given her focus on the campaign this will serve as an initial launch with a view to expanding the site later on. Job seekers can send their resume and photo directly to Sandra for posting on the website’s jobseekers page or call  324-1612 for more information.
