Iowa Workforce Development (IWD) announced last week the statewide launch of its new IowaWORKS site, an online employment services system.  

The updated IowaWORKS site provides a variety of employment resources, tools and services for employers and job seekers throughout the state.

The new site features an individual user portfolio, an assisted job search, a resume and letter builder, a virtual recruiter and an advanced skills matching section. The site also allows user to find upcoming classes, workshops and job fairs near them.

“IowaWORKS is a customer-centric program that makes it easier to navigate our employment services,” said Beth Townsend, director of Iowa Workforce Development, in a news release.”Whether you are job seeker posting a resume or an employer looking for the right candidate, the IowaWORKS system helps connect Iowans to opportunities throughout the state.” 

IWD modernized their system to align with the regulations put in place by the Workforce Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA). The legislation is designed to strengthen the U.S. public workforce system by helping get job seekers into high-quality jobs and careers.
