The primary advantages to using state employment sites is that the prospective employee can research all aspects of available jobs, while the current state employee can find information on benefits. Many state employment sites even offer the opportunity to begin the employment process by allowing people to apply for available jobs. The amount of information available changes from state to state.
Most state employment sites provide a comprehensive listing not only of jobs available, but the requirements for those jobs. They also often provide details about each job, from responsibilities to payment type and ranges. Those already employed by the state may find access to an employee portal, allowing individuals to view personalized employment information. This information can include anything from a listing of payment history to tax information and benefit information. For access to an employee portal, personalized identification information is generally required.
Some state sites provide additional employment-related information to help prospective and current employees alike. This can include links to education sources that visitors can use to meet basic job requirements or to proceed on a current career track. They also include information on any career events taking place in the area, where a job seeker can meet with state employment personnel.
