MADISON - The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development launched the first phase of its new mobile-friendly employment tools available to employers and job seekers for free on www.JobCenterofWisconsin.com, an online public labor exchange website.

The first phase offers streamlined registration from more than 20 screens to five screens, improved usability and search features, advanced skills matching to connect talent with job postings and easier access to integrated labor market information for making informed employment decisions.

“The Department of Workforce Development is making the most significant investment in the JobCenterofWisconsin.com website since the site was launched in 2008,” Secretary Reggie Newson said in a statement. “These enhancements will help employers and job seekers make more effective employment connections. New, dynamic tools enable users to develop skills-based job postings and resumes and conduct advanced talent and job searches.”

Future JCW phased improvements for release in 2016 include: additional skills matching tools with emphasis on job seeker credentials; options for personalizing and receiving desired labor market information; a comprehensive and searchable workforce events calendar; and mapping features.
