Oklahoma Department of Commerce Launches OKJobMatch.com

OKLAHOMA CITY — Governor Mary Fallin has made strengthening Oklahoma’s economy a cornerstone of her agenda. To advance our state’s prosperity and help match job seekers with employers, the Oklahoma Department of Commerce, in conjunction with the Governor’s Council for Workforce and Economic Development, recently launched OKJobMatch.com.

OKJobMatch.com is a new, free website that uses an easy to understand question-and-answer format to help job seekers create a resume, post their resume and connect with employers across Oklahoma. Whether you’re unemployed, underemployed or looking for a career change, OKJobMatch.com can help.

“Unemployment is a very complex issue,” said Norma Noble, deputy secretary of commerce for workforce development. “It’s not as simple as bringing in a factory or expanding an existing business. You also have to find qualified employees that possess the necessary training and education to fill those jobs. That’s why OKJobMatch.com is so important.”

OKJobMatch.com searches more than 16,000 websites, 1,200 of which are in Oklahoma, matching the right employees with the right jobs in all of Oklahoma’s 77 counties and neighboring states. Job seekers can upload their own resume, or, use the resume builder that gathers information about training, job skills and work history and builds a resume that maximizes the user’s career options.

“OKJobMatch.com is part of a larger online portal that will, through continuous updates, provide Oklahomans with access to other workforce services,” said Noble. “One element of OKJobMatch.com that was important for us to include in the launch was a function to help veterans looking for employment.”

OKJobMatch.com also allows veterans the ability to translate the skills and knowledge they gained serving our country to civilian job descriptions. The website also identifies industry-recognized certifications that are in high demand and provides veterans with links to partner agencies that can provide more detailed job placement assistance.
