Information Tools and Resources offered by Nebraska Workforce Development
The Nebraska Department of Labor contributes to the state's economic growth by providing quality customer service to employers and job seekers seeking opportunities to work and prosper.
NEworks, Nebraska's online labor exchange, is a single interactive portal to jobs and labor market information in Nebraska. Available online 24/7, NEworks has over 20,000 active real-time jobs available
Instead of navigating a smaller pool of jobs on multiple sites, NEworks subscribes to all of the other search engines. This means jobseekers can access listings from other employment sites, such as Monster, CareerBuilder, government and corporate websites, and newspaper job postings and apply for jobs through one, easy-to-use portal.
Besides searching for jobs, jobseekers can also register for employment services, complete skill assessments, and find training opportunities. Tools enable them to prepare cover letters, and build or import a resume. The system finds jobs automatically based on specified criteria and alerts the jobseeker of available jobs via email or text message notifications.
For employers, NEworks features a virtual recruiter that scans available applicants by skill, education, certifications, hiring preferences and other talent criteria, and refers top candidates to employers who can then create, maintain, rank, and automatically update their own database of candidates.
NEworks offers access to a comprehensive database of labor market information. Users can research high-growth industries, skill requirements, in-demand jobs, etc., by region, town, zip code, county, metropolitan area or statewide, enabling jobseekers and employers to understand the characteristics of a labor market.
