Direct Employers Taking Over Americas Job Bank

From Jason Whitman. Following up on the news from earlier this year that America's Job Bank (AJB) will be discontinued in mid-2007, the DirectEmployers Association has announced to its membership that it will take over the capabilities and duties of AJB with its JobCentral Web site and job search engine. The JobCentral National Labor Exchange will make jobs available to state representatives via FTP and an API, as well as by simply linking to JobCentral or including a job search form on state Web sites. DirectEmployers is doing a lot to push its members' jobs out to other Web sites (such as Google Base, SimplyHired, Indeed, Jobster and others) for added visibility, and this news is yet another reason for employers to consider joining the association.
