Editor's Note: The following is a press release from NJ Assembly Republicans.
Assemblywoman Nancy F. Muñoz today announced the opening of a state-sponsored online job search kiosk that will be available to employment-seeking constituents at the lawmaker’s 21st legislative district office in Summit.
The move follows the initiative of Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco.
The kiosk is linked to the Jobs4Jersey.com online program that is a one-stop career center which provides valuable tools, tips and information for job seekers to help them obtain employment by matching their skills with positions best suited for them.
Jobs4Jersey.com utilizes the OnRamp job search tool which provides a job-seeker with several options to:
- Upload an existing resume into OnRamp: with the added ability to have the system analyze, enhance and refine your resume.
- Build a resume: OnRamp asks the job-seeker a series of simple questions through which the system creates a resume complete with job function descriptions and personal skills.
- Real-time job matching: once a job-seeker’s resume is complete in OnRamp, job postings matching the job-seeker’s skills and qualifications are automatically sent to an applicant via email.
- Real-time job search: users can actively search all job postings with various search options.
“An important part of our responsibilities as representatives of the people is to provide residents with the resources to access information about job openings and training programs," said Muñoz, R-Union, Morris and Somerset.
“As we well know, finding a job today is quite a challenging task and even more so for those who do not have a computer and internet access.
Muñoz called the Jobs4Jersey website "an excellent tool that both employers and job seekers should be utilizing to the fullest extent.
“It’s state-of-the-art, it’s free and I would encourage any constituents in need of employment to take full advantage of this kiosk that is now located in our district office.”
Bucco, R-Morris and Somerset, in conjunction with the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, was the first legislator to introduce a job search kiosk at his district office that is linked into the Jobs4Jersey.com outreach program.
Jobs4Jersey.com also offers advice to employers looking to recruit workers, and the OnRamp tool was just expanded to give employers the same state-of-the-art technology to find workers with the exact skills needed by businesses to be competitive.
The Jobs4Jersey.com kiosk is accessible from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (except holidays). The office is located downtown, across the street from the Summit Train Station at 57 Union Place, Suite 310.
All job seekers can access the search site at: www.Jobs4Jersey.com
