How to bring down New Jersey's unemployment rate
A site that offers information on 575,000 jobs has been launched by the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development Tuesday. The website, www.Jobs4Jersey.com, aims to quickly connect New Jersey's over 390,000 jobless with potential employers.
According to officials, employers and job-seekers will find the website to be a quick and easy portal to the vast and previously scattered assortment of state and federal data, weblinks, and programs designed to assist them both with training, financial assistance, and advice. This site is a virtual one-stop place to bring them together.
Gov. Chris Christie said "as we work to help New Jersey businesses grow, we must at the same time concentrate our efforts on assisting our valuable workforce find meaningful employment opportunities. The Department of Labor and Workforce Development's website can help connect the businesses that are creating these jobs to the New Jerseyans who want them by bringing the same one-stop approach that we've used at more than 30 One-Stop Centers throughout the state."
The user friendly navigation site is designed to guide people to some of New Jersey's best online tools for finding work, finding skilled employees, and connecting to the many programs established to help businesses and workers.
"We know more than half of the people involved in a job search in our state are surfing the Internet for positions, whether it is from home, at our many One Stop Career Centers, or at a local library. This website is a means to more quickly steer them to businesses in need of skilled workers, and hopefully we can get those businesses growing as we put people on a path toward full-time employment and a new career," Labor Commissioner Harold J. Wirths said.
So, what are we waiting for? Let's check the website to find out what job do we fit in. This is a great initiative of Gov. Christie's governance.
We hope to hear great results from this real soon, less unemployed, and happier lives for all of us.
