Raleigh, N.C. – NCWorks Career Centers are now registering more job seekers on the new  NCWorks mobile app to connect them to meaningful employment. 

The mobile app allows users to apply for jobs, compare their skills to job requirements, find training opportunities, and learn more about a career or industry through wage and employment projections.  In the mobile app, individuals search for jobs by keyword or circling a select area and all job postings within that circumference will be displayed.  

“We want North Carolina’s job seekers to have access to the best jobs in the market,” said Will Collins, executive director of NCWorks.  “By connecting people to jobs and training resources in their areas, we can help them get back on their feet and improve the lives of our communities.”

The app also contains special features for veterans, who can review job postings up to 24 hours in advance of the general public and search for civilian careers using the Military Occupational Code.  

Registration for NCWorks Online is free. The app is free to download for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.  N.C. Commerce Workforce Solutions operates the NCWorks app.
