Good News -- PSEG Has Over 150 Open Positions Posted On New Jersey's New Job Search Tool

NEWARK, N.J., Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite the sputtering economy, PSEG currently has over 150 positions posted on New Jersey's new job search tool Jobs4Jersey.com.

Nearly 100 employers and business association leaders recently gathered at PSEG's corporate headquarters for Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno's unveiling of OnRamp, a new Internet tool designed to help employers effectively find qualified workers. The Lt. Governor was joined by PSEG chairman, president and CEO Ralph Izzo, and Labor Commissioner Harold J. Wirths.

"Many people continue to seek jobs, but many employers are also struggling to find skilled workers for key positions," said Lt. Governor Guadagno. "While state training programs have helped many workers upgrade their skills for these positions, today New Jersey is making it easier for employers to find and put qualified New Jerseyans to work." 

OnRamp is a free service for both employers and job seekers. A state-owned site, Jobs4Jersey.com, uses cutting edge technology that not only allows employers to search for candidates based on specific skills instead of job titles, but also has a unique feature that allows employers to "clone" the resume of a highly qualified worker. This means that employers can take the resume of a skilled employee, feed it into the OnRamp system, and the tool will retrieve other candidates with similar skill sets.

As PSEG continues to make significant investments in transmission and renewable energy infrastructure, it is the human resource demand that will continue to increase. The company sees OnRamp as an opportunity to help meet those demands. 

"We have an ongoing need for people with a good grounding in science, technology, engineering and math," said Izzo. "We cannot afford to miss anyone with the right combination of skills we need for our workforce. The state's new website will help us to find people with the required expertise. Our HR people have put this new tool to the test and it has the potential to be incredibly valuable in supporting our workforce recruitment efforts."
