It is the start of a New Year, and that means many things. For most of us, it is usually a time of contemplation and planning. Many of us do this by making New Year’s resolutions. If one of your resolutions is to find another job, you are in good company.

After all, a study by Inc. determined that around 16% of us have that as a top goal at the beginning of the year (as you might guess, weight loss and exercise are in the top slots!).

The good news is that it can be easier than ever to meet your resolution of finding another or a better job this year if you are in Blount County. The Blount County Chamber of Commerce has its very active Job Board and even highlights some Featured Jobs on a regular basis.

As of January 2019, they make a wide array of options available, including employment in construction estimating, repair crews, skilled mechanics and fabricators, and many more. In fact, their job page has categories as diverse as arts and culture, travel, veterinary, IT, automotive and much more. You can also search by the name of a company seeking workers in the region.
