Scouring the classifieds for a job has long been a thing of the past, but even the next iteration of job hunting — the standard online job listing and search — is becoming outdated. As the number of online career search tools grows, so too does the need for a platform that feels unique and innovative.
Enter WorkSourceWA.com, the state of Washington's new job match website, announced July 6 by Gov. Jay Inslee.
Developed by the state in conjunction with Monster Worldwide Inc., the website hosts more than 157,000 jobs and about 191,000 resumes.
"It's scalable for a highly mobile workforce,” said Dale Peinecke, the state’s employment security commissioner. “It provides a robust job search and resume solutions for job seekers, and it gives employers talent management software to provide real-time, ranked job matches."
The new platform replaces the state’s previous platform, go2worksource.com, which, like many other online job sites, was developed more than a decade ago and used an outdated technology.
