SENATOR CUNNINGHAM TAKES ACTION TO HELP CONNECT AREA JOB SEEKERS WITH EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Jersey City Legislative Office Will House Jobs4Jersey Kiosk for 31st District Public Use

TRENTONSenator Sandra Bolden Cunningham, D-Hudson, announced today that her legislative office has installed a Department of Labor and Workforce Development Jobs4Jersey kiosk to help connect New Jersey’s workforce with jobs throughout the state and region.

“New Jersey currently has the highest unemployment rate in the region and many of our residents have been searching for jobs without any luck for far too long,” said Senator Cunningham.  “This could be the tool they need to find a job and get back into the workforce. With the installation of the Jobs4Jersey kiosk in my legislative office, residents of the 31st Legislative District can use this portal to create and post a résumé and refine their job search. This program will also make their résumé available and searchable to nearly ten-thousand employers across the state and region.”

Launched in August, the Jobs4Jersey initiative is a web-based job search tool that connects employers with qualified employees. The portal allows New Jerseyans to create and upload a résumé and search for a job, while allowing employers to search keywords within job seekers’ résumés to identify candidates who have specific qualifications and work history for their position.

The portal is available online at www.jobs4jersey.com, but Senator Cunningham notes that for those without Internet access or who are not comfortable using a computer, trained staff will be available at her legislative office to assist in using the portal.

The Jobs4Jersey kiosk will be available for Jersey City and Bayonne residents to use from 9 AM – 4:30 PM Monday – Friday at Senator Cunningham’s legislative office located at 1738 Kennedy Blvd in Jersey City. Those interested in using the system should contact Senator Cunningham’s office at (201) 451-5100 to set up an appointment.  

The portal is funded for the first two years through a federal labor grant. According to the Job4Jersey website, there are almost 10,000 New Jersey employers registered on the site and more than 150,000 job listings in New Jersey alone.
