RALEIGH – One month after its launch, NCWorks Online is already connecting workers with North Carolina’s employers. NCWorks, operated by the N.C. Division of Workforce Solutions, received more than 80 million hits during the month of August. It has registered more than 8,000 new job seekers and more than 1,000 new employers.

During its first month, NCWorks had 94,000 new and returning individual users, compared to the 25,000 users in July on N.C. JobConnector, which was replaced by the new website. User accounts that were previously registered with the N.C. JobConnector were automatically transferred to the NCWorks site.


“NCWorks is an exciting and essential tool that will help put our citizens back to work and strengthen the businesses that are so vital to our economic health,” said Secretary Sharon Decker. “I’m confident this system will continue to make a lasting, positive impact on North Carolina.”

Developed by the Florida-based company Geographic Solutions, NCWorks offers job seekers advanced job-matching tools that will match their current skills with what is required by employers and allow users to study the labor market trends, including projections for wages and future employment prospects, for the positions they seek. Job seekers can search through job posts pulled from thousands of websites and receive alerts through e-mail and text message.

NCWorks users can learn how citizens in various occupations advanced their careers from their previous job and discover other occupations that are similar to their current industry. Assistance for writing resumes and preparing for job interviews is also available. Employers can analyze real-time information on the labor market and post job openings at no cost to their business. 

“The popularity of NCWorks demonstrates there is a real need in this state for a technologically advanced and efficient system that connects employers with talented job seekers,” said Assistant Secretary of Workforce Solutions Roger Shackleford. “We’re proud to offer this service to North Carolina.”
