Labor Department Launches Website For Job Seekers
The U.S. Department of Labor has launched a new website aimed at helping people find jobs.
The site is called “mySkills myFuture” and it allows users to view local job postings, find training and education providers. The site offers job descriptions, salary information and common tasks related to a new occupation.
"Americans deserve good jobs, and mySkills myFuture is one of the ways we’re ensuring they can find and access them," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis.
"The mySkills myFuture portal personalizes job searches. It allows people to explore work possibilities based on their experience, strengths and interests. It also connects them with high quality training programs and provides localized job postings."
Users will be able to find information for short-term training programs offered by local community colleges and other postsecondary schools. They can find career-specific details about getting certifications, licenses and apprenticeships. Users also will be able to view and apply for open job postings available by ZIP code or state. Job listings are from a national database and will be updated daily.
