The Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration has made some of its most popular online tools available as mobile-optimized websites.
The change is part of the department’s ongoing efforts to make workforce resources more open and accessible to the communities that need them most.
Jane Oates, assistant secretary of labor for employment and training, wrote on the department’s blog that the following tools are now available:
- Locate and contact the American Job Center closest to them.
- Conduct a Job Search by searching local job listings throughout the entire United States. Job listings are updated daily and can be searched by job type or keyword as well as by city, state or ZIP code.
- Perform a Veterans Job Search to match military job experience to civilian careers, and then view local job listings for those careers. Users can search by their military job title or their occupational classification (MOC/MOS) code and can view job listings by city, state or ZIP code.
- Browse the Salary Finder, which provides average hourly wages or annual salaries by occupation and location. The data come from the Occupational Employment Statistics program of the department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
- Search the Training Finder for education and training programs in a specific area. Users can search by occupation, program or school, and then find contact information for the relevant program.
