Office of Employment offers online resumes

-A A +A

To make it easier for job seekers to
search for career opportunities, the Kentucky Office of Employment and
Training (OET) has launched a new job-match system. The new tool,
provided at no cost, helps users create a professionally formatted
resume highlighting transferable skills from life experiences and work
history, and forwards leads based on the database of thousands of
current job listings to the job seeker daily via email.

Customers who already have an electronic resume can upload it to the new

"In this tough job market we need to find every way possible to improve
the tools we already have," said Beth Brinly, commissioner of the
Department of Workforce Investment. "This site adds more jobs, makes it
easier for job seekers to find those jobs and allows them to explore the
labor market for information such as wages and job availability."

The service matches people with jobs based on how specific job seekers'
skills, qualifications and experiences fit into recognized patterns of
placement and not simply based upon key word placement. It analyzes more
than 70 data elements between each job seeker and each posting to ensure
that matches are accurate and appropriate. Jobs can be searched by
location, posting date, keywords and rating desire.

Kentuckians, whether unemployed or just looking for new employment, are
encouraged to register with the site, post their resumes and let this
program become their personal job search agent.

OET helps individuals prepare for, secure and maintain employment;
assists employers in locating and selecting the best qualified workers
for their job openings; and provides income maintenance to ease the
financial burden on individuals who are out of work through no fault of
their own.
