ALBANY, N.Y. (WENY) – New York is aiming to increase awareness about job opportunities in the state.
Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation that will allow the state’s department of labor to create a public awareness campaign that will promote the New York State’s job bank.
The job bank is an online resource that connects job seekers with jobs across all industries.
“New Yorkers have a world-class tool at their fingertips to connect talented job seekers to meaningful employment, and thanks to the bill sponsors, this legislation will help us spread the word,” Governor Hochul said. “I encourage businesses who haven’t used the New York State Job Bank to join the hundreds of other employers who have listed their jobs to be seen by tens of thousands of candidates.”
By visiting the job bank website, New Yorkers can browse more than 250,000 open jobs by location, job title, and company name.
Additional job search and career development tools are designed to help individuals plan their future, organize their job search, develop resumes, and explore careers.
The governor’s office says the campaign will be made available through a variety of outlets, including internet, radio, and billboards.
