He’s been ranked one of America’s “most social Mayors” for years – tweeting from his Blackberry and engaging in conversations with his constituents morning, noon and night. Today, Newark Mayor Cory A. Booker’s status as a forward looking, technology driven leader solidified even more as he announced the Newark Jobs Connect platform.
The platform distributes more than 35,000 available jobs across the digital landscape and matches job seekers with employers through social media, email and mobile technologies to addresses the long term unemployment issue in Newark. In addition to the technological advantages, seekers have access to a variety of career resources to help them throughout the searching, networking, and interview process.
According to Mayor Booker, “Residents of Newark will directly benefit by hearing about available jobs before anyone else and Newark employers will be able to reach qualified, local candidates fast and first.”
This initiative firmly places the Mayor and the City of Newark boldly out front in their commitment to create job opportunities for their citizens using the best tools in the marketplace. We’re thrilled to launch newark.tweetmyjobs.com with Mayor Booker and power the Newark Jobs Connect platform.
This is great. I am considering moving to Florida but I will stay in this area if i could secure a full time position here. Mayor Booker is hard working guy. Health care/nursing is viewed as a” recession proof” job but that may not always be the case. People want FULL-TIME jobs.
Joseph, you’re exactly right. People do want full-time jobs, and Mayor Booker’s Newark Jobs Connect is an effective platform for job seekers and employers to reach each other. Thanks for the comment!
What a positive and uplifting story. Congratulations to Mayor Booker for being cutting edge in dealing with the gripping unemployment problem in his City.
