Mercer Island Youth and Family Services to upgrade ‘Joblink’ website

Mercer Island Youth and Family Services (MIYFS) is updating its JobLink website, anticipating increased use of the job posting service as the economy shows signs of recovery.

As a result, the MIYFS JobLink program is making updates to its website and changing its address to www.mercergov.org/joblink.

JobLink is where Mercer Island residents can go to advertise for paid help with everything from child care to yard work, to setting up a new computer. Anything from a one-time job to a permanent position can be posted on the board.

Cheryl Manriquez, MIYFS Employment Coordinator, says, “JobLink is a free service to post available jobs in the community, and we’re beginning to see signs of a slowly recovering economy in the number of postings that are coming through.”

Those seeking employment can search the job board and reply personally to the individual or business seeking to hire. The job board is available on-line at www.mercergov.org/joblink and at two physical locations: Mercer Island High School and the MIYFS Offices in Luther Burbank Park.

To post a job, call the JobLink voicemail at (206) 275-7764 or visit www.mercergov.org/joblink.

For more information, contact Manriquez at (206) 275-7869 or cheryl.manriquez@mercergov.org.
