Iowa Workforce Development Encourages Iowans to use IowaJobs.org
Davenport, Iowa – Whether looking for a job or seeking to hire qualified applicants, Iowa Workforce Development encourages Iowans to begin their search with IowaJobs.org.
“By using IowaJobs.org, employers and job seekers can take advantage of the many services we provide,” said Elisabeth Buck, Director of Iowa Workforce Development. “IowaJobs.org offers something for everyone statewide.”
At any given time, over 13,000 jobs are posted. Many of Iowa’s top employers have their job openings automatically added to IowaJobs.org directly from their web sites. This ensures that only the most current jobs are posted.
Employers can take advantage of the many screening options available to guarantee only qualified applicants are submitted. They can also save time by having Iowa Workforce Development staff manage their job postings. In addition, employers can find access to labor market information along with other employment data.
William Bryant from Davenport found a job posting for Country Spring Bottled Water on IowaJobs.org. With assistance from Judy Russell in the Davenport Workforce Center resource room, Bryant was able to get his résumé put together and sent off to the employer by the deadline to apply. A few weeks later, a company representative called Judy to thank her for referring Bryant to them and let her know he was hired for the position.
This is just one example of the many success stories from IowaJobs.org and the Davenport Workforce Center resource room. To learn more about how IowaJobs.org can help you, contact the Davenport Workforce Center at (563) 445-3200.
