Talent & Workforce Development

Talent Connect services of the Alliance & Chamber are designed to help people advance their career in the Cedar Valley.

Work the Valley

Work the Valley is a series of events throughout the school year and the summer designed to connect students across the Cedar Valley with employers, young professionals, and each other.  Student networking events, downtown tours, employer visits and more, all to help you do more than simply work in the Cedar Valley.

  • Work the Valley: Summer Series
    Get the summer started off right by signing up interns to attend our summer events that get them better connected to their peers -- and the community. 
  • Work the Valley: Destination Downtown
    Take a stroll through some of the historic downtown areas of the Cedar Valley.  Learn about their history, current developments, and future plans, as well as getting an inside look at the downtown apartment living, restaurants, cultural centers and more.

YP Connect

With a number of active young professional organizations, there’s no shortage of ways for young professionals to get involved. Whether it be networking, community volunteering, and professional development or just to get out of the house and meet new people, there’s always something to do.
