State of California’s newly redesigned CalJOBSSM online job system is open for business Popular job site offers new features for both job seekers and employers SACRAMENTO – The California Employment Development Department (EDD) has successfully launched its newly redesigned CalJOBSSM website, and more than 438,000 users have already taken advantage of the site’s new features. CalJOBSSM is the state’s online job resource center where job seekers can find local and statewide employment and labor market information while employers can post job listings. The result is both job seekers and employers benefit from the newly enhanced service by matching up potential employees with promising job openings. There are no costs or fees to use CalJOBSSM. “This is an exciting redesign of a valuable online resource for all job seekers and employers in California,” said EDD Director Pam Harris. “With this updated, more user-friendly system, job seekers can do targeted job searches, build résumés, access career resources, and get information on education and training programs, while employers can quickly post their job listings and search for qualified applicants.” Under federal guidelines, all individuals receiving Unemployment Insurance (UI) must register for work with their state employment service. In California, that means individuals receiving UI benefits must register on CalJOBSSM and maintain an active résumé. UI claimants can also use CalJOBSSM to research their local labor markets and find information on available training.
