Nebraska is launching a new application designed to help local job searchers. The free app is an extension of the Nebraska Department of Labor’s job site that matches employers with qualified candidates.
There are currently approximately 35,000 Nebraska jobs posted on the NEworks app and nearly 25,000 resumes of qualified job seekers. The mobile app gives users the option to search jobs by company, job title and location. The app is available for download in the App Store and Google Play by searching “NEworks” on Android devices or “Nebraska Jobs” on Apple devices. Once in the app, the ‘Jobs Nearby’ feature quickly identifies jobs in the user’s immediate area. Users can easily share job listings via email, Facebook and Twitter, as well as save their favorite jobs and searches.
In addition to the mobile app, Nebraska’s Chambers of Commerce and economic development organizations across the state have begun placing ‘Local Jobs’ buttons on their websites that link to NEworks. The employment opportunities searchable via the ‘Local Jobs’ buttons showcase job openings in the surrounding areas.
“The job search process can be daunting, so we are excited to offer this app as a way to make the job search features of NEworks even more accessible,” said Commissioner of Labor and Director of Economic Development Catherine Lang.
