Web-based resume bank

New York State employers can seek candidates to fill job openings by checking "America's Talent Bank," a nationwide database of resumes, at the website of the state Department of Labor (DOL), http://www.labor.ny.gov

America's Talent Bank (ATB) is offered on the website in conjunction with America's Job Bank (AJB), an Internet-based, multi-state listing of more than 634,000 jobs nationwide. Both are operated for the nation by DOL.

Employers can selectively search ATB for qualified applicants by retrieving resumes that meet specific criteria entered by the employer, such as an applicant's education level, work experience and salary requirements.
