Website Helps Search For Jobs With Tennessee Employers

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Governor Bill Haslam and Department of Labor Commissioner Karla Davis announced Monday a new website to search for jobs with Tennessee employers.

The website, www.jobs4tn.gov, will automatically notify job seekers when jobs they may qualify for are posted and notify employers when candidates who fit their needs register.

It will contain positions placed directly by Tennessee employers, corporate Internet sites, and major job search engines. It will also identify available green jobs.

The governor made a commitment during his gubernatorial campaign to develop a new jobs database.

"The unemployment rate for Tennessee is at its lowest since November 2008 and has fallen below the national rate, but it is still too high," Haslam said. "With Jobs4TN Online, those without a job will have quicker and better access to job openings related to their skills, and as we work to make Tennessee an even better place to expand and start a business, we want to help employers find the employees they need."

The new website will also make available information about the labor market, including demand occupations, education requirements and salaries for positions, labor force projections, and training program graduates. It can be personalized to focus on specific communities, metro statistical areas or statewide.

Jobs4TN Online will utilize a bigger search than the state's previous job search site, the Source. It will increase the amount of jobs listed in Tennessee from 30,000 to more than 85,000.
