A new state jobs database is available to help connect job seekers with Tennessee employers.
Jobs4TN Online, which can be accessed at www.jobs4tn.gov, is a virtual recruiter, automatically notifying job seekers when jobs they may qualify for are posted and notifying employers when candidates who fit their needs register.
The online database contains positions from job orders placed directly by Tennessee employers, from corporate Internet sites, and from major job search engines.
Jobs4TN Online also identifies available green jobs.
“This is the most-updated, single-source Tennessee job search available,” said state Rep. Jim Cobb, R-Spring City.
“I encourage everyone seeking employment visit this database daily. If you do not have Internet capabilities, visit your local library.”
Gov. Bill Haslam committed to developing a new jobs database during his gubernatorial campaign.
“The unemployment rate for Tennessee is at its lowest since November 2008 and has fallen below the national rate, but it is still too high,” Haslam said.
“With Jobs4TN Online, those without a job will have quicker and better access to job openings related to their skills, and as we work to make Tennessee an even better place to expand and start a business, we want to help employers find the employees they need.”
Jobs4TN Online makes available labor market information, including demand occupations, education requirements and salaries for positions, labor force projections and training program graduates.
Information can be tailored to focus on specific communities, metro statistical areas or statewide.
“This system is much more than a traditional job search engine,” said Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis. “Jobs4TN Online offers extensive information for interviews, lists of local training providers, and the capability to create and send résumés.”
The state’s previous job search site, the Source, included job orders received by Tennessee Career Centers and jobs listed by Fortune 500 companies.
Jobs4TN Online uses a more robust search that provides first-run jobs from newspapers, government sites and private job boards, and the amount of jobs listed in Tennessee has gone from 30,000 to more than 85,000.
Jobs4TN Online can be accessed anywhere with a computer and Internet access. Tennessee Career Centers across the state have free computer resource rooms with guidance on job searching.
Anyone not comfortable with using a computer may have referrals provided in person at the center once they have registered for services.
The Roane County Tennessee Career Center is at 1082 N. Gateway Ave., Rockwood. Its hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
