  11 September 2014

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has launched a suite of online resources, know as the "Business Center," for employers looking to recruit, train and retain a skilled work force through the department's CareerOneStop website.

The website includes tips about how to recruit qualified candidates through local American Job Centers and provides employment projections. Additionally, the website offers access to local training and educational institutions, a catalog of occupational certifications and a tool to help employers translate the military training and skills of returning service members into specific civilian occupations. The CareerOneStop Business Center is available online at According to Jane Oates, assistant secretary of labor for employment and housing, "These resources will help educate employers about our nation's work force development system and put the resources they need to find and hire qualified workers right at their fingertips." The new Business Center page builds on existing resources available through CareerOneStop, which also has information to help job seekers find education and training providers, conduct a job search and access local labor market information.
