The business development team was formed in 2014 as a response to the steady growth and expansion Work Opportunities Unlimited has experienced throughout the years.

The business development team members work within multiple markets in order to develop opportunities for individuals based on their strengths and career goals. Additionally, the team forms partnerships with area businesses in order to provide qualified candidates when positions become available.

The business development team works collaboratively with the local team members who work directly with the job seekers. This collaboration has proven to be extremely beneficial to job seekers and employers alike by having an in-person representative and a business developer behind the scenes accelerating the job placement process. As a result employers are hiring more qualified candidates and job seekers are getting better jobs, quicker. The majority of team members work remotely from their home utilizing a telephone and computer to make contact with employers.

Additionally, we have a regional business developer who works remotely and is able to go into the community to meet with area employers. If this sounds like something that excites you, we are always looking for passionate and capable people to join our team!
