Here are some useful employment resources from the US Dept. of Labor:
- CareerOneStop.org – exploring careers and other employment assistance
- Job Tool Challenge – community-submitted tools for job seekers
CreateNewJobs.com was not submitted in time to be included in the challenge, though it may still eventually be listed. Here’s some info about the challenge, from the DOL’s site:
[this is] part of the President’s Open Government Initiative [which] is intended to increase citizen participation in government. To that end, the Department of Labor designed the Challenge [to] allow jobseekers and workforce development professionals to share their opinions about online job search and career advancement tools. The goal of the Challenge is to help job seekers quickly connect to available jobs and ameliorate the hardship caused by the current recession, by identifying the best online job search and career advancement tools and to help the workforce investment system learn about these tools so they can make appropriate tools available to job seekers through the nation’s almost 3,000 One-Stop Career Centers. At the end of the Challenge, DOL shared the most highly recommended tools in each of the six categories posted on the Careeronestop.org.
