Need a job? Commerce Dep’t launches new job search site

The state launched a new website for job seekers yesterday, www.ncworks.gov [1], to help the state’s unemployed find work.

The website (click here [2] to access) allows individuals, at no cost, to post resumes and browse openings by locations. Employers can post openings they have as well.

The Commerce Department’s Workforce Solutions division expects the new website, which replaces the agency’s NC JobConnector site, to save the state $10.2 million over the next five years by eliminating the need to maintain several information databases. It was developed by Florida-based Geographic Solutions, according to a news release from the state agency.
