Southwest Missouri News--Joplin

The City of Joplin is looking for ways to attract new employees to the area.

The Joplin City Council agreed earlier this month to fund a program to allocate $9,000 to $16,000 to mailing brochures to potential workers outside the area.

Rob O'Brien, Chamber of Commerce president, said area growth has kept the unemployment down to 3.5 percent for more than a year.

The program would include brochures, with job information inside, sent to area workers by their employers.

Those workers in turn are asked to give the brochures to people they know who may want to relocate to the area.

Graduates of Missouri Southern State College and Pittsburg State University, Pittsburg, Kan., would also receive the brochures, also offered on the chamber's Internet site.
