The S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce is adding a comprehensive search engine, SCWorks.jobs, to its online job-matching website SCWorks.org.
SCWorks.jobs allows job seekers to look for work by high-demand industry using their individual job parameters and priorities.
The employment department worked with nonprofit employer group DirectEmployers Association and the National Labor Exchange on the new site. Available jobs listed on the site are from only those employers verified by SCWorks.org or DirectEmployers' JobCentral.org.
The agency also created new websites that align with the industry clusters identified by the S.C. Talent Pipeline initiative, which identified high-growth, high-demand jobs in South Carolina. The industry-specific sites include:
“These new websites put the jobs posted at SCWorks.org just a click or two away, making it easy for people to search for specific jobs,” DEW executive director Cheryl Stanton said in a news release. “It also helps employers attract the right candidate for a job by giving them easy access to information about available positions.”
The new websites are viewable on smartphones and other mobile devices. In addition, they include social media links, allowing users to quickly share job postings via Facebook, Twitter, email and more.
The new SCWorks-veterans.jobs site helps veterans translate their military experience into jobs in the civilian world. The Military Occupation Code Crosswalk function allows veterans to enter the type of work they performed in the armed services and receive a list of civilian jobs that require those skills. The system also translates military occupation codes into skills employers are looking for in potential employees.
