New Louisiana website to help link job seekers and employers
The Louisiana Workforce Commission announces upgrades have been made to its website that helps connect employers and job seekers. LWC Executive Director Curt Eysink says they've now designed the site, www.laworks.net, to work sort of like a dating website when it comes to matching an employer with someone who fits the job.
"And that the people who apply for the job are a good fit for that opening," said Eysink.
He says they plan to continue to improve their web based services so Louisiana's employers can continue to satisfy their employment needs and so more residents can find nice jobs they qualify for.
"They make it easier for employers to communicate with job seekers and there are better tools for them to be able to search through the database in order to find what they need," says Eysink.
Eysink says those looking for jobs can now better customize their search and import employment history from sites like LinedIn. He says the new enhancements also include better links to training providers.
"So if you're interested in a particular job that you might not have all the credentials that you need, the system itself will tell you where in your area you can go to get the qualifications that will align you with that job," said Eysink.
