JACKSON — The state of Mississippi has unveiled an interactive resource to pair employers and jobs through the Internet and mobile applications.
Gov. Phil Bryant and employment and industry officials announced the launch of the Mississippi Works program yesterday.
A website combines an integrated iPhone and Android mobile applications into a real-time, web-based system to help job seekers search for openings based on job type, location or academic degree required.
A job applicant also will see how their qualifications match a particular job opening and help them understand additional education, training or experience they may need to qualify.
When registered on the site, people will receive a text or email notification of jobs that match their qualifications.
It will allow employers to post openings at no cost and connect with qualified candidates.
