Iowa leads nation in technology for job postings

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa Workforce Development's job bank has doubled in the last year thanks to a unique partnership with the Direct Employer's Association.  Workforce Development is able to use state of the art technology to index jobs directly from an employer's website and post to IowaJobs.org in order to promote current opportunities statewide.  Employers no longer are required to enter current opportunities on multiple job sites to receive maximum exposure.

"Iowa is the leader in using job indexing through the National Labor Exchange (NLX).  The Iowa state job bank has nearly doubled its number of currently available jobs.  Today, through the job indexing process, 597 additional companies have jobs in the Iowa state job bank.  As a result, Iowa has been able to shift business service staff to more intensive business and economic development services," said Charlie, Terrell, operations manager, National Association of State Workforce Agencies.

Companies interested in utilizing the indexing process for streamlining the posting of jobs, can contact Denise Schippers, via email or by calling (515) 281-9097.
