Through, the National Labor Exchange hits an unprecedented benchmark of one million quality, verified employment opportunities for job seekers.

INDIANAPOLIS, May 18, 2012 / PRNewswire-USNewswire / — Employers of all sizes have helped, powered by the National Labor Exchange (NLX), reach a new milestone by providing collectively one million current, un-duplicated job opportunities.

“The goal of the National Labor Exchange has never been to create a single outlet for all job openings but to collect each real job opportunity from employers and distribute it down to job seekers,” commented Bill Warren, Executive Director, DirectEmployers Association.

Created in 2007 in a partnership between DirectEmployers Association and the National Association of State Workforce Agencies (NASWA), the National Labor Exchange leverages private non-profit-owned technology and existing state workforce agency resources. After the discontinuation of America’s Job Bank, the National Labor Exchange has shaped an efficient, seamless way for federal contractors and subcontractors to meet required job posting and delivery standards, while still providing a cost-effective solution to reach a highly diverse workforce. Through, the National Labor Exchange provides quality, verified jobs to state job banks and veteran’s representatives daily. All labor exchange services are free to state workforce agency users, both job seekers and employers, as well as, to state workforce agencies and federal partners.

Via, the National Labor Exchange has collected and distributed job openings from over 100,000 employers exclusively found on corporate career websites and state job banks. In five years time alone, the total job count of the National Labor Exchange has gone from 450,000 jobs from employers of all sizes and industries being collected and distributed to present day totals of 1 million available jobs daily. While the main outlet for the National Labor Exchange is the website, the job feed has also been given to trusted partners whose goal is to further facilitate the labor exchange. Regardless of where a job seeker discovers the National Labor Exchange job listing, they will be returned to either the corporate career site or the state workforce agency it originated from, helping reduce the middleman and directly connecting employers and job seekers.
