(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Tennessee launched its new online jobs database on Monday, according to published reports.
The database offers job seekers and employers necessary tools for connecting them to the hiring process by featuring a searchable list of private sector jobs as well as notifying employers of a qualified candidate for a position.
Gov. Bill Haslam announced the site Monday alongside state Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis.
“The unemployment rate for Tennessee is at its lowest since November 2008 and has fallen below the national rate, but it is still too high,” Haslam said in a statement. “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.”
