Other Ways to Search for Job Openings

I know a company is hiring, but I don’t know the specific job title.
Search by company to see all the jobs available at that facility.

I need a job at a specific location in Wayne County.
Search by city/town for jobs available in a specific community. Be sure you know which town the company is located in.

I’m interested in positions in a specific field (i.e. nursing, accounting).
Search by job title for specific careers.

I have a certification in a specific field, and I’m interested in jobs using that certification.
Search by certification to find jobs requiring specific certifications. However, don’t limit your search to this specific field. If the job doesn’t require the certification or it wasn’t included in the job description posted it will not show up in your search. If you’re having problems getting results, broaden your search to the other categories provided.  

Refine Your Job Search Even More
In addition to the four main search categories, you can refine your job search even more by using the education or job type filters. Just as in the certification search category, these filters can be too narrow so if you’re not finding positions, remove the filters.

Use these tips to ensure your company’s jobs will appear on the Home in Wayne Job Portal.

How do I get my open job opportunities listed on the Home in Wayne Job Portal?
If your open positions are listed online, either on your company website or another job search website, the portal will find it using key words, location, and SOC codes. As long as the job(s) are posted online, you do not need to do anything else. However, make sure job postings are not posted in a PDF format. The job portal won’t be able to scan PDF documents.

How can I make it easier for candidates to find my company’s job(s)?
The job portal uses several different search categories ranging from industry sector to location, job title, and educational credentials. Including this information in the job posting will improve the search results for the jobseeker.

I know corporate HR posted jobs on our company’s website. Why can’t I find them here?
If your company is a subsidiary of a larger corporation, it’s possible the jobs will appear under the corporate name instead of your local company name if the local company name is not in the job posting. If possible, include the local name or both the local and corporate name in your job postings.

My company is a manufacturer, but when I look under manufacturing, I don’t see all the positions we have open.
Because the job portal uses specific SOC codes, only manufacturing-specific jobs will appear in the manufacturing sector. If you have customer service, office, or sales positions open, those will appear under the applicable job categories. You can see all your open jobs by entering your company name as a search choice.
