DWD Launches New JobCenterofWisconsin.com Tools

Mobile-friendly public labor exchange offers enhanced tools for employers and job seekers; represents first phase of major Labor Market Information System upgrade

MADISON – Today, Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Secretary Reggie Newson announced the launch of the first phase of new, mobile-friendly employment tools available to employers and job seekers at no cost, 24 hours a day on Wisconsin's online public labor exchange, JobCenterofWisconsin.com (JCW).

"The Department of Workforce Development is making the most significant investment in the JobCenterofWisconsin.com website since the site was launched in 2008," Secretary Newson said. "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. The launch will also feature a redesigned Labor Market Information landing page that highlights the most requested reports and data that our labor market experts offer, with additional enhancements for the page in the planning stages."

JCW – Phase 1 offers employers and job seekers:

This initial phase of enhancements move the state's Labor Market Information System (LMIS) toward the ultimate vision of a best-in-class system that uses the latest available data to connect talent with job postings based on skills.

The easily consumable labor market information that LMIS makes available to clients, customers and other stakeholders to make informed decisions will draw upon the most current data available, including data from JobCenterofWisconsin.com job postings, resumes and occupational data. The Wisconsin public labor exchange portal integrates different applications under the JCW name, including enhanced applications such as JobNet Business, Skill Explorer and WORKnet.

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.
