Job seekers can search for jobs, create resumes, and find education and training.

This is a no-fee service that allows anyone looking for a job access to thousands of job postings from numerous websites, job-search engines and businesses.  This system was launched by the State of North Carolina in 2013 to replace the existing NCJobConnector, so you’ll need to create a new account if you have not done so already.

Employers can  post job listings, recruit, screen and assess candidates, and search labor market information. Employers can also connect with education and training services that are available to existing and potential employees.
