Hometown Opportunity, a job search and career resource website for Auglaize, Mercer and Darke counties, is helping make connections between local employers and potential employees. Jared Ebbing, who runs and operates the website, gave a year in review presentation to the Auglaize County Commissioners on Thursday.

Ebbing, who is the Community/Economic Development Director for Mercer County, said the website is a way to better connect people and careers and therefore help benefit the local region.

During the presentation, Ebbing explained that one group of people that the website is designed to target is recent graduates or people who will soon graduate from college who want to come back to the area but don’t know much about finding a job in the area.
