About the National Labor Exchange (NLx)
Created in 2007 with NASWA, the NLx is a sophisticated electronic labor exchange that leverages private, nonprofit owned technology and existing state workforce agency resources to collect and distribute jobs found exclusively on corporate career sites and state job banks.
The mission of the NLx is to help create a cost-effective system that improves labor market efficiency and reflects our nation’s diverse workforce.
How It Works
The NLx technology, made available by the partnership between DirectEmployers and NASWA, gathers all current and unduplicated job opportunities from verified employers and distributes that job content into state workforce agency job banks, as well as multiple sites within the network of sites, to reach a maximum number of job seekers. The NLx also collects and distributes job openings exclusively found on over 14,000 corporate career websites and from the state job banks.
Since 2007, the NLx has made available over 40 million job openings, from some 340,000 employers of all sizes and industries. NLx continues to increase job openings by adding new, vetted employers daily. The NLx network aims to collect all real job openings in the market, however, this effort is not about creating a single outlet for all jobs.
Capitalizing on today’s job seeker behavior the NLx places quality job feeds in the hands of trusted partners whose goal is to facilitate the labor exchange. Regardless of where a job seeker discovers an NLx job opening, they will be returned to the point of origination: either the corporate website or the state workforce job bank.
Powered by the National Labor Exchange, US.jobs replaced JobCentral in January of 2012 as the national outlet for labor exchange job content. All opportunities available on US.jobs help connect job seekers directly to the employer listing the job. To maintain accurate job content, new employment opportunities are added daily with special emphasis placed on veterans, people with disabilities and diversity.
State Workforce Job Bank Sites
Working in strict compliance with U.S. Department of Labor guidelines and regulations, the National Labor Exchange provides employers and states with an online tool to better manage our nation’s vast talent resources. It helps companies build their workforce and comply with State and Federal regulations, such as Affirmative Action Program objectives, Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP) obligations and veteran hiring targets.
One posting option for the NLx allows in-state employers to post jobs for free on their respective state’s workforce agency website.* Jobs posted on state sites are then pulled into US.jobs.
*Registration, validation process and job posting time frames vary by state.
