Jobs4TN Online can help small employers
In the last “Tennessee Employer,” we asked readers what they would like to see in this newsletter. One employer wants to know what a small employer can get from a big Web site, i.e., Jobs4TN Online, which is the question we’re focusing on here.
Jobs4TN Online can save employers money in market research and recruiting activities. On the home page www.jobs4tn.gov, Business Solutions and Labor Market Information are especially helpful for smaller employers.
Jobs4TN Online has a robust employer database with contact information for particular businesses. If an employer is looking for specific businesses to sell to for a marketing campaign, for example, he can go to Industry Data under Labor Market Information, then Employers under Current Data Analysis and request local employer sites by industry or occupation within certain geographical areas.
Maybe you are an employer looking for candidates for a job opening. Currently Jobs4TN Online contains 30,000 to 40,000 résumés and will soon have more. Go to Business Solutions and Looking for Employees to tailor a request to look at résumés.
To list a position, you must first register as an employer at Post a Job under Business Solutions; then complete the requirements for the opening you wish to fill. You can search by skill level the jobseekers who are registered. Jobs4TN Online also provides templates for posting jobs to speed up the process.
Labor Market Information contains comparative wage data helpful to employers. Under Business Solutions an employer can see training available in his area, schools in a certain county, and trained graduates/program completers he might hire.
Take a few moments to become familiar with www.jobs4tn.gov. The site can save you time by being a virtual recruiter for your business, and you will save money in not having to advertise.

Electronic response system demonstrated for employers
Employers in three counties took part in a pilot project January 24 to find out firsthand the benefits of responding electronically to the department’s requests for separation information regarding claimants who are filing for unemployment insurance.
Selected employers from Hickman, Perry, and Lewis counties visited the Career Coach at the Howenwald Career Center to learn how to use the State Information Data Exchanges System (SIDES) E-Response Web site for exchanging information with the Department of Labor.
SIDES E-Response is free, fast, and paperless. An employer submits information quickly and accurately, reducing the probability of overpayments.
The pilot project was used to increase awareness of the SIDES E-Response Web site and may be taken to other areas of the state. Click the logo above to learn more about SIDES.
