Helps Residents Find Work and Offers Local Businesses Free Online Job Postings
(Long Island, NY) Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano launched a free job finding application this week - Nassau Works - that notifies job seekers of job opportunities.
Powered by TweetMyJobs, the jobs platform provides an integrated social and mobile job solution that connects job seekers and employers. This new platform is offered to County businesses for free to help reduce their recruiting costs and ensure they gain access to qualified candidates.
One of the largest databases of available jobs on the Internet, Nassau Works also includes a one-of-a-kind augmented reality feature that allows seekers to view job openings in the geographic proximity of their smartphone, said Mangano.
“Nassau County is leading the charge in helping our citizens get back to work and reduce the demand on social services,” he said. “This free, new online jobs platform will help job seekers find employment and provide our local businesses with free access to the same cutting edge tools that Fortune 500 companies are using today.”
Available at www.NassauWorks.com or at the App Store for your iPhone and Android mobile devices, the service uses Facebook and Twitter’s social media networks, as well as mobile technology, to instantly push relevant jobs to job seekers where they want them and when they want them. Job seekers can sign up to receive jobs on their mobile phone, via email, Twitter or on the web.
Robin D. Richards, Chairman and CEO of TweetMyJobs, said that Nassau Works serves as the perfect complement to the job creation initiatives already being implemented by Nassau County. Accordingly, all economic development compacts entered into by the Nassau County Industrial Development Agency will require businesses to post job openings on Nassau Works.
“It is an honor to partner with County Executive Mangano and Nassau County to provide our job matching technology,” he said. “The platform will act as a powerful compliment to Executive Mangano’s job programs and lead to a fast connection of job seekers with hiring employers.”
