Since 2007, the National Labor Exchange has made over 13 million employment opportunities available to job seekers across the nation.
INDIANAPOLIS, April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The National Labor Exchange (NLX), a sophisticated electronic job search engine, reached a milestone when Michigan became the 50th state to join, creating a truly nationwide electronic labor exchange.
Created in 2007, the National Labor Exchange has made over 13 million job openings available to state workforce agency job banks through a unique private-public partnership between the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA) and DirectEmployers Association. Over 150,000 employers of all sizes can be found and currently has an average of 950,000 job opportunities per month available on the network.
The National Labor Exchange is the only tool allowing all employers, especially multi-state employers, to download jobs daily into state job banks in an effective and cost-efficient manner. This helps eliminate third-party aggregators and duplicated job listings.
Instead of using federal funding for operations, research and development the National Labor Exchange leverages private, nonprofit owned technology with existing state workforce agency resources. All of the labor exchange services offered are free for state workforce agency customers, both job seekers and employers, as well as the state workforces agencies themselves and federal partners.
