Jobs4TN Online tops 100,000 job seekers

Roughly one year after Gov. Bill Haslam launched Jobs4TN Online, 108,500 job seekers have registered with the system, and more than one million job searches have been tallied

Tuesday marks the first anniversary of the program.

“Jobs4TN Online, with an average listing of around 90,000 Tennessee jobs, is the state’s premier employment resource,” Burns Phillips, acting commissioner of the Tennessee Labor and Workforce Development Department, said in a release “We’ve seen an uptick in referrals to jobs listed directly by Tennessee employers as well as jobs obtained from searching other Internet sites that are included in the system.”

During the past year Jobs4TN Online counted 147,000 applications to jobs posted by Tennessee employers and more than 457,000 applications to jobs from other sites. When Jobs4TN Online was developed, Governor Haslam added the “spidering” software that surveys jobs posted on external Web sites and includes those in the database; examples of external sites are major job search engines, corporate Internet sites, newspapers, government sites, private job boards, and institutions of higher learning.
