The State of New York has officially launched JobCentral, a free job portal provided by DirectEmployers Association (DE). DirectEmployers is a nonprofit HR consortium of global employers formed to improve labor market efficiency through the sharing of best practices, research and the development of technology.
The state’s new job bank, which can be found at http://www.laborny.jobs, has a little over 84,000 jobs and claims that every job is 100% real, not spam.
Uploading a resume and searching for jobs is free. Job seekers will also benefit by:
- Saving job searches for repetitive use
- Posting resumes for employers to search
- Searching by Keyword and Location
- Filtering by Company, Location, Occupation, Industry or Time Range
For employers, posting jobs on the site is free. Signing up as an active employer on the site enables companies to search thousands of resumes, automatically add jobs listed from their corporate career sites to the job bank, and expand company exposure by posting their job across the country via Labor Department partnerships.
Companies posting on the new site include General Electric, Time Warner Cable, Siemens, Kellogg Company, Kraft Foods, Inc. and more.
“Providing job seekers with free, simple, easy access to more jobs is furthering the mission of Verizon Wireless, Staples, PepsiCo and the hundreds of other employer members of DirectEmployers Association,” stated Bill Warren, the Association’s Executive Director. “Employers participating in the New York State job bank will be able to automatically add their jobs, increase their company exposure via the National Labor Exchange, as well as gain access to a highly qualified talent pool.”
New York State Department of Labor is the fourth state to launch the free JobCentral solution, joining Connecticut, Mississippi and New Jersey. DirectEmployers Association also provides a data transfer of jobs to many other state job banks via the JobCentral National Labor Exchange.
