Jobs4TN Online Users Top 100,000 During 1st Year

Monday, May 13, 2013

Tuesday marks the first anniversary of Jobs4TN Online, Tennessee’s comprehensive jobs database launched by Governor Haslam in May 2012. Since going live a year ago 108,500 job seekers have registered with the system, and more than one million job searches have been tallied.

“Jobs4TN Online, with an average listing of around 90,000 Tennessee jobs, is the state’s premier employment resource,” said Labor and Workforce Development Acting Commissioner Burns Phillips. “We’ve seen an uptick in referrals to jobs listed directly by Tennessee employers as well as jobs obtained from searching other Internet sites that are included in the system.”

During the past year Jobs4TN Online counted 147,000 applications to jobs posted by Tennessee employers and more than 457,000 applications to jobs from other sites. When Jobs4TN Online was developed, Governor Haslam added the “spidering” software that surveys jobs posted on external Web sites and includes those in the database; examples of external sites are major job search engines, corporate Internet sites, newspapers, government sites, private job boards, and institutions of higher learning.

Jobs4TN Online allows job seekers to create and post resumes and create cover letters for resumes. Applicants can also explore local training providers and demand occupations, with education requirements and salaries for those positions. Also, claimants’ using Jobs4TN Online fulfills their requirement to make at least three documented work searches each week while drawing unemployment benefits.

Employers can choose criteria for applicants they want to see, and the system displays candidates that match. If the employer wants to save the resume search, the system triggers the virtual recruiter feature that will send resumes that match the employer’s job search at intervals specified.

Jobs4TN Online contains a wealth of labor market information, such as trends and jobs in demand and schools that provide specific occupational training along with how many students have completed the training in a certain area. Of the registered users of Jobs4TN Online, 37% have a high school diploma or equivalency, 38% have college or vocational school credentials, and 20% have a bachelor’s degree or higher. Many graduates and program completers of Tennessee Technology Centers and community colleges are registered with Jobs4Tn Online and can be readily matched with employer needs.

Jobs4TN Online can be accessed with a computer anytime from anywhere that has Internet access. Employers and job seekers may visit https://www.jobs4TN.gov to register, post jobs and apply for jobs.
