Iowa Workforce Development Encourages Iowans to use IowaJobs.org
Iowa City, 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.
After being laid off from a local factory, Steve T. was collecting unemployment and working with Iowa Workforce Development to find opportunities. He saw an opening for a Maintenance position at a new Hog Slats Company on IowaJobs.org and was referred to the position by his workforce advisor. After an interview, he was hired for the position and began working last week.
This is just one example of the many success stories from IowaJobs.org and Iowa City Workforce Center. To learn more about how IowaJobs.org can help you, contact the Iowa City Workforce Center at (319) 351-1035.
