New Labor Market Information tools, time-saving resources, system upgrades in 3rd phase of enhancements
MADISON – Today, Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) Secretary Ray Allen announced additional enhancements to JobCenterofWisconsin.com (JCW) website, the state's free online public labor exchange that connects talent with opportunity 24 hours a day.
"We are building upon the dramatic improvements we've made to JobCenterofWisconsin.com since September 2015 and are pleased to introduce a third phase of enhancements to our free, 24-hour website for job seekers, employers and all other users," Secretary Allen said. "We will continue to seek ways to further optimize this highly popular, user-friendly resource in the future."
Among the improvements are additional features for the highly popular MyLMI resource, which was introduced in January 2016. MyLMI offers a customizable platform for labor market analysts, employers, educators, parents and students to drag-and-drop data sets onto a single screen, where they can analyze the information and save preferences for future retrieval. MyLMI system improvements include:
Other enhancements include:
This phase of improvements also includes initial steps toward closer coordination between JCW, Wisconsin Native American tribes and Wisconsin Department of Transportation's (WisDOT). Tribal members and businesses can now self-identify on JCW for potential transportation-related opportunities.
