DWD launches new JobCenterofWisconsin.com tools

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) has launched the first phase of new, mobile-friendly employment tools available to employers and job seekers at no cost, 24 hours a day on Wisconsin’s online public labor exchange, JobCenterofWisconsin.com (JCW).

JCW – Phase 1 offers employers and job seekers:

  • Streamlined registration from over 20 screens to five screens.
  • Improved usability and search features.
  • Advanced skills matching to connect talent with job postings.
  • Easier access to integrated labor market information for making informed employment decisions.

This initial phase of enhancements move the state’s Labor Market Information System (LMIS) toward the ultimate vision of a best-in-class system that uses the latest available data to connect talent with job postings based on skills. 

Future JCW phased improvements for release in 2016 include: additional skills matching tools with emphasis on job seeker credentials, options for personalizing and receiving desired labor market information, a comprehensive and searchable workforce events calendar, and mapping features.
