South Carolinas long line of job seekers will soon have a new tool to help them hunt for work.
On Aug. 30, the state Department of Employment and Workforce will debut a new website SConestop.org
that is a virtual one-stop shop in the search for a job.
It will serve the same function as a the agencys 38 offices across the state. Employers can use it too.
"Weve had other job search engines in the past, but we wanted something more modern, more on the cutting edge of technology," said John L. Finan, the employment agencys executive director. "I think all of our customers, both job seekers and employers, are going to see a dramatic improvement and a much more effective system."
The new website allows online job searches to be conducted from one site instead of going to different places, said Courtney Nowak of the state Workforce Development Program.
