Database has the most Tennessee jobs on the Internet

Tennessee employers now have greater flexibility in searching for qualified job candidates and are able to post their vacant positions more easily, the result of a new project developed by the Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development and announced by Governor Haslam and Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis on May 14.

  “With Jobs4TN Online, those without a job will have quicker and better access to job openings related to their skills, and as we work to make Tennessee an even better place to expand and start a business, we want to help employers find the employees they need.”

Called Jobs4TN Online, the system offers employers extensive online services in meeting their employment needs. In addition to posting jobs and searching for employees, employers can see labor market trends and jobs in demand, find schools that provide specific occupational training and learn how many students have completed the training, and explore labor force data using various criteria.

Posting a Job Is Easy  
If you are an employer and wish to list a job opening, take a few minutes to register at The system will guide you through simple steps to post your position.  From the home page, choose “Looking for Employees” under Business Solutions. Select “Manage Jobs” on the left side of the screen, then “Add New Job Order” at the bottom of the next screen.

Have the following handy and you’ll be set to post:
  • job title, location and contact person
  • skill sets for the job (employer can select from a list) and specific software or certification requirements
  • job order details, such as number of positions, number to refer, dates to display the job, whether full-time or part-time
  • job description, including hiring requirements, e.g., drug testing, background checks
  • minimum education and experience required
  • whether driver’s license is required
  • salary specifications
  • benefits
  • job application methods employer will accept, such as resume and/or application online; mail, phone, or in-person application

The process is straightforward and easy to use. Help guides – appearing as word bubbles on blue backgrounds – are available throughout the posting form. When you’ve finished the process, you are in full control. You can add or remove openings or change specifications to your listings at any time; changes are updated immediately.


Jobs4TN Online Can Be a Virtual Recruiter  
A virtual recruiter feature can refer applicants to you automatically. From the home page, the employer selects “Looking for Employees” under Business Solutions, then “Candidate Search.” After the employer chooses criteria, the system displays candidates that match. At that point the employer can view résumés, and the system asks if he wants to save the résumé search; doing so triggers the Virtual Recruiter feature. The employer specifies how often he wishes to be contacted – e.g., once a day, once a week – and he will be sent résumés that match his job search at those intervals. Give it a try.
