Workforce Development Month Showcases Tools To Find High Tech Jobs

During this second week of Workforce Development Month, the focus is on new job seeker tools including a mobile app for ConnectingColorado.com

On this second week of Workforce Development Month, and in recognition of Denver Startup Week, the Department of Labor and Employment is rolling out new tools to help employers with their recruitment efforts and jobseekers with their job searches. 

A new app for ConnectingColorado.com, the state’s largest jobs database, makes mobile navigation easier for users who want to track job listings while on the go.  Downloading the app is quick and easy.  It’s available on iTunes for iPhone users and at Google Play for Android users. 

The Labor Department also released a redesigned version of its Virtual Job Fair tool. 


The two hiring events using this platform in September illustrate how diverse a virtual job fair can be.  One has job listings from more than 100 employers in the Colorado Springs area while the other has been created specifically to fill job openings with Comcast in Eagle County.  Both are available 24/7 at the Department of Labor and Employment’s jobs database, Connecting Colorado.

The Labor Department is also releasing a new technology job search microsite – 
coworkforce-technology.jobs. The site allows a user to filer by location, title and keyword and quickly returns more than 9000 openings within the technology umbrella. The jobs pull from ConnectingColorad.com. The site pulls jobs specifically within the technology industry and reduces the search time. Industry specific sites for Energy, HealthCare and Advanced Manufacturing have also recently been released. 

Individuals with an interest in technology should contact their nearest Workforce Center to learn more about readying themselves for a high tech career.
