New Online Portal for Job SeekersJanuary 24, 2024
Connecticut has launched a new online jobs portal aimed at assisting state residents — and those seeking to move here — in the process of finding a job.
The new portal - jobs.ct.gov - joins health.ct.gov and business.ct.gov as the next service category in Connecticut's ongoing evolution toward a more digital state government that streamlines and improves access to state services and resources.
Some of the resources available through jobs.ct.gov include:
- Powerful job search tools
- Job search tips and personal help
- Free and low-cost training, certificate, and classroom programs
- Resources to help employers hire, train, and retain employees
All of the resources are Connecticut-specific and focus on connecting jobseekers with the variety of employment and workforce development opportunities.
The strong and steady statewide economy continues to add jobs, but employers in some industries still face workforce shortages, and jobs.ct.gov will be a valuable resource to them.
This portal also provides employers with information to reach greater numbers of skilled jobseekers from diverse backgrounds, which is critical to a more equitable and growing Connecticut economy.
If you are in the job market or have a family member or friend looking for work, we encourage you to check out the state's new job portal jobs.ct.gov.
