Finding the right employees for your business

The CareerOneStop Business Center

Finding the right employees is important for helping businesses grow. For many new and small businesses, this process can be daunting. The Department of Labor (DOL) is making this process easier through the ‘Business Center’ located at CareerOneStop.Org.

This site provides direct access to online resources for employers looking to recruit, train and retain skilled workers. Employers can find information on writing effective job descriptions, how to properly interview candidates, find local skills training programs, salary information, and state-by-state resources available for hiring workers.

The Business Center also includes tips about how to recruit qualified candidates through local American Job Centers and provides employment projections. Additionally, the site offers access to local training and educational institutions, a catalog of occupational certifications, a tool to help employers translate the military training and skills of returning service members into specific civilian occupations, and an ‘Available Workforce Tool’ that enables employers to build a profile of the workforce in a local, state, or national area, including data on employment, wages, unemployment rates, and demographics.

The CareerOneStop Business Center, along with other business resources, can be found on the library's Business/Small Business Resources page.
