BISMARCK -- North Dakota employers and job seekers have more help at their disposal with new services on the North Dakota Job Service Web site.

The site has a new section, FindJobsND.com that can expand the number of jobs publicized by linking to employers' Web sites through "spidering" technology. It also offers job seekers resume-building help, the services of a "virtual recruiter" for employers.

Job Service Executive Maren Daley said FindJobsND.com stands out among other job search Web sites because it is the largest site completely dedicated to North Dakota and the local labor market.

The site got its official launch Monday. It had a "soft launch" in January and some employers and job seekers are reporting they like what it offered.

Stacy Brewer and Michelle Miller of Applied Engineering in Bismarck said they've already used the new services.

"It's a great tool for us," Miller said.

The site offers customized searches, simplified job postings and labor market information.

Job Service is working with the state Commerce Department on finding more workers for the state's businesses.

"We have traveled the state extensively throughout the past year talking to business people about workforce and energy issues," Commerce Commissioner Shane Goettle said. "The biggest single request from employers is more employees," he said.
