U.S. Department of Labor Announces Mobile-Friendly Portal To Make it Easier for Americans to Apply for Seasonal Jobs
WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Labor today announced the launch of SeasonalJobs.dol.gov, a mobile-friendly online portal that is designed to help Americans identify and apply for open seasonal and temporary jobs. The site is a complete redesign of the Office of Foreign Labor Certification’s (OFLC) Public Job Registry, which has served as a repository for seasonal and temporary jobs.
In addition to providing more robust and personalized search capabilities that tailor results to the geographic location of American job seekers, SeasonalJobs.dol.gov makes it easier to integrate employment postings with third-party job search websites. Job notices on SeasonalJobs.dol.gov are now indexed for inclusion in the Jobs on Google Search feature, and the Department plans additional integration with commonly used job search websites to help Americans find jobs.
Employers that have prepared applications in iCERT, but have not yet submitted them, will need to log in to iCERT and complete Section H, items H.6a, H.6b, and/or H.6c, before the application can be submitted. Stakeholders can access a copy of the form instructions and revised Forms ETA-9142A and ETA-9142B here.
