The U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration has launched a web portal to help job seekers match their skills to new careers and to find out what training they need for a new job.
Users of the online tool, called mySkills myFuture, will be able to view local job postings and locate training and education providers. They will be able to find job descriptions, salary information and common job tasks associated with a new occupation.
"Americans deserve good jobs, and mySkills myFuture is one of the ways we're ensuring they can find and access them," said Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis. "The mySkills myFuture portal personalizes job searches. It allows people to explore work possibilities based on their experience, strengths and interests.”
Site features include:
In addition, users will be able to find opportunities for short-term training programs provided by local community colleges and other postsecondary schools. They can find career-specific details about obtaining credentials such as certifications, licenses and apprenticeships. Users will be able to view and apply for open job postings available by ZIP code or state. Job listings from a national database will be updated frequently.
mySkills myFuture includes an integrated help system with page-by-page instructions and videos to enhance the user experience. The online program is based on data from the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Information Network, known as O*NET, and the National Labor Exchange. Data from O*NET includes the required knowledge, skills and abilities for more than 900 occupations, which helps identify transferable skills and skill gaps among occupations. The National Labor Exchange is a service of DirectEmployers Association, a nonprofit consortium of more than 550 leading U.S. corporations.
