Workforce issues?
Small Nation has the solution to connect employers with job seekers in your area.

HOMETOWN OPPORTUNITY is a proven, online workforce development platform created for counties, municipalities and regional areas to help tackle their workforce shortage issues head-on. Our web-based portal was designed to connect job seekers of all levels, from graduating students through tradespeople and degreed professionals, with local companies who are planning to grow.

Large, online job boards like or Indeed are crowded and don’t always match job openings to the right job seekers. It’s like fishing for the best fish... but in the ocean.

The Hometown Opportunity platform was constructed to match local jobs with local talent. By narrowing the playing field, job seekers become aware of the many employment and career opportunities that are available in their own back yard. More importantly, regional areas can leverage Hometown Opportunity’s visibility to retain their workforce rather than watching qualified candidates leave in search of opportunities elsewhere.

“I was very impressed by how easy it was to locate talent in this area. We were able to fill our management team positions in addition to all the positions in the warehouse because of Hometown Opportunity.” 

David Simons, General Manager, Ferguson Enterprises

“I knew that I eventually wanted to bring my career back to the local area, but I thought it would take some time. With a Marketing and PR background jobs can be limited in any city. I didn’t think it would happen as quickly as it did.”

Mindy Kremer, Marketing Coordinator, Mercer Health

“Our career readiness students didn’t think that we had many opportunities in our area. When they see that there are good paying jobs that are in demand, it gets them excited. Hometown Opportunity helps make wonderful career connections.”

Michelle, Teacher, Celina High School

“We’re looking for highly technical, skilled trades positions, which are in high demand in this area. Prior to using Hometown Opportunity it was difficult to find qualified employees. We used to only get two to three a week. Now we’re getting ten times that amount, and from highly qualified applicants.”

Brian Hackman, Director of Operations, Tru-Edge Grinding Inc.
