The Greater Cedar Valley Alliance & Chamber has launched an initiative to attract fresh talent to the Cedar Valley.  The goal of "Work the Valley" is to illustrate the great employers and fabulous culture of the Cedar Valley to both emerging workers (college students) and professionals in other markets in Iowa and across the Midwest. 

Part of the #WorktheValley campaign involves site tours for job seekers and college students.  These "Work the Valley Tours" allow a group of students to see, first-hand, the thriving, 21st-century companies seeking new talent in our community. And they work!  Last year, over 23% of the students taking part in a #WorktheValley event found an internship or permanent position in the Cedar Valley. 

Targeted recruitment events will also be held throughout the year in communities outside the Cedar Valley Area.  These industry-based presentations will engage local employers with a pool of candidates looking to relocate to Northeast Iowa, and allow employers to talk directly to these prospects hoping to "Work the Valley."

If you want to get involved with our next "Work the Valley" event, contact Danny Laudick,
