Tools For Job Searching

Unemployment is down, but not to a person who is out of work or underemployed. To focus on the need for job search tools and links to employment programs, the New Jersey Community Resources website has added a new section titled, “Employment and Job Search”. It includes links to state agencies, workforce development groups, programs run by nonprofits and leading online job search tools. They include: OnRamp, Career Connections, Department of Labor and Workforce Development, One-Stop Career Centers, Civil Service Commission, John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, New Start Career Network, Easterseals New Jersey – Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP), The Balance: Best Job Search Engine Sites, Resources For Job Seekers, Elsa Langer, Indeed and Glassdoor.

New Jersey Career Connections services can be accessed through a partnership with a number of libraries throughout the state. Library staffs have been trained to provide job search assistance in the following public libraries: Atlantic City, Cumberland County, East Brunswick, Gloucester County, Long Branch, Monmouth County, New Brunswick, New Jersey State Library, Newark, North Bergen, Ocean County, Paterson, Plainfield, Roselle, Salem, Sussex County, Union and Warren County.
