In July 2007, Connecticut Job Central replaced the Connecticut Job Bank, which was associated with America’s Job Bank that ceased to exist at that time.
Connecticut Job Central is the state’s electronic job matching system, part of the nation’s largest Internet employment service. JobCentral National Labor Exchange is a service of DirectEmployers Association (DEA), a nonprofit consortium of leading U.S. corporations, in alliance with the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA).
The Association is managed by a board of directors consisting of member company representatives with an executive director and operations staff managing daily operations. The Association's purpose is to develop and manage the JobCentral National Labor Exchange and related Internet systems and software to help employers increase labor market efficiency and reduce recruiting costs.
After registering on the Connecticut Job Central website at www.jobcentral.org/ct, an employer in the state of Connecticut can use it to post job openings and to search for resumes without any fee. This recruitment tool and resource has proven to be well-used by businesses and job seekers alike.
For the first 12 weeks of 2009, the number of individual job seekers who conducted at least one search on Connecticut Job Central totaled 164,966. This is an average of about 13,747 per week, but the weekly number grew significantly during that time from 9,536 on January 3 to 15,029 on March 21 – clearly reflecting the increasingly dismal job market and the large increase in the number of individuals searching for jobs in Connecticut.
If you have a job opening, consider posting it to Connecticut Job Central, and if you are looking for a job, take a look at the site to see if you find just what you are looking for.
