Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno on Tuesday joined members of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development to unveil the OnRamp service for employers, a new internet tool at Using the state-of-the-art system, employers can find the skilled workers they need without exhausting resources or wasting so much time.

New Jersey employers, and those within 50 miles of the state, can input the specific skills needed for an open position. When the listing is complete, OnRamp can quickly obtain a list of candidates with the exact talents required.

"Many people continue to seek jobs, but many employers are also struggling to find skilled workers for key positions," explained Guadagno.

Posting a position through OnRamp would open employers to a field of more than the 100,500 job-seekers who have already registered at the site. However, they would only encounter the best-matched applicants.

"With 90 percent of New Jersey's employers being small businesses, OnRamp can perform the type of employee searches that businesses have neither the time or money to handle. It acts like a human resources service," said Labor Commissioner Hal Wirths. first launched late last year as a search engine for workers, and it currently holds about 120,000 job openings in the state. The number of postings should increase as employers learn of the new service.

All services are free of charge.
