Officials unveiled a new jobs database Monday that helps connect job seekers with Tennessee employers.
Jobs4TN Online is a virtual recruiter, automatically notifying job seekers when positions that they may be qualified for come available. It in turn notifys employers when candidates who fit their needs register.
Gov. Bill Haslam committed to developing a new jobs database during his gubernatorial campaign. The good news is that unemployment rate for Tennessee is at its lowest since November 2008 and has fallen below the national rate, but is still too high according to Gov. Haslam.
The system is much more than a traditional job site. The jobs listed in Tennessee has gone from 30,000 to 85,000. If an individual doesn’t have access or isn’t comfortable with a computer then referrals can be provided in person at the center once they have registered for services.
