Today at the Mercer County One-Stop Career Center in Trenton, Acting Governor Kim Guadagno and Labor Commissioner Hal Wirths announced the launch of a new job-search engine known as OnRamp.

It would be accessed through the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development's Jobs4Jersey.com.

The free web site was created earlier this year, but the new tool did not officially launch until today.

Those looking for a job would go online and upload or create a resume. Their skills would be showcased to thousands of employers, and they would have access to job opportunities listed on 2,400 web sites with one search.

According to a press release from the state, OnRamp would allow New Jersey job-seekers to:

  • Receive e-mail alerts on job matches
  • Move their search beyond job titles by having the search engine list skills and knowledge
  • Learn how to improve the chances of being noticed by employers
