NC Commerce Dept. launches new jobs website

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The N.C. Department of Commerce has launched a new job-search website helping job seekers and employers connect with each other, the agency announced Monday.

The new system, NC Works Online, is designed to streamline the job search process while improving security and reducing annual operational costs by more than $2 million.

"NCWorks Online is an example of increasing our department's efficiency and providing stronger customer service to the citizens of North Carolina, especially those who are unemployed," Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker said in a statement.

NCWorks Online is a no-fee service. Employers can post jobs as well as take advantage of real-time labor market information.

"Given its proven track record in other states, we're excited about how NCWorks Online will improve the ability of job seekers and businesses to improve their searches for employment and talented workers, respectively," said Roger Shackleford, Assistant Secretary for Workforce Solutions. "We're confident this new and efficient system will help strengthen our economy as more talented job seekers and employers connect with each other."

NCWorks Online was developed by the Florida-based Geographic Solutions, which has developed similar job-search systems for 18 other states. It replaces NC JobConnector, which had served as the division's online job-search tool.

The Commerce Department said in a statement that NCWorks Online will also eliminate the need for eight additional information systems, which is expected to save $10.2 million over the next five years.
