A good way to find a job in Tennessee is to conduct an online job search at Jobs4TN.gov, the job website of the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. To access a computer and other resources, job seekers can go to a Tennessee American Job Center.
To use and save information on Jobs4TN.gov, job seekers first create a user name and password and register for an individual account. This allows them to search job listings, post resumes, file unemployment claims, obtain career guidance and peruse training programs. To use the job search engine, they enter their location, the parameters of their search, and any employer names or keywords to narrow their search. The search results list the job title, employer, location and salary. A link takes them to a description of the job with details such as duration, hours, contact information of the employer, and needed education and work experience.
An interactive map at the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development website shows the locations of the Tennessee American Job Centers in each county. The centers offer free use of computers with Internet capabilities, fax machines and telephones. They also offer training on how to search for jobs, write resumes, attend interviews and obtain certifications.
