Department of Labor Launches Jobs4Jersey, a One-Stop Website that Connects Job-seekers and Employers
New Jersey's Department of Labor and Workforce Development launched the “www.Jobs4Jersey.com” website this week. The ambitious goal? to link New Jersey job-seekers and employers.
Employers and job-seekers will find the new 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.
The one downside the web-site has is that to get any information at all, you have to register as a job seeker or employer. And yes they do provide an email address if you have questions Contact the department of labor at Jobs4JerseyJobSeeker@dol.state.nj.us.
