Job Search Tools are Going Mobile
Jan 18, 2013

The Employment and Training Administration has made some of its most popular online tools available as mobile-optimized websites. These mobile tools will help smartphone or tablet users locate American Job Centers near them, conduct an online job search, search for jobs for veterans, view and compare salaries for various occupations and search for nearby job training providers. These changes are part of an ongoing effort to make workforce resources more accessible to a wider audience and to ensure that anyone interested in finding a job has all the tools they need at their fingertips.

Users can:

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.
