On the Job

Posted in Recovery Act, Recovery.gov by Recovery.gov on May 4, 2011

While Recovery.gov’s main mission is to display information about Recovery spending and projects, the Recovery Act requires that the site provide “to the extent practical” leads on potential jobs.

To meet this mandate, Recovery.gov has enhanced the site’s job-search capability to include three sources for possible jobs:

  • Recovery award recipient websites – This search focuses specifically on jobs listed on websites of prime recipients of Recovery awards.
  • State websites – Use the links to connect to your state’s website for job opportunities close to home.
  • The Internet – Powered by Indeed.com, this search provides results of job listings from multiple job databases.

Keep in mind, however, that these sites are private and independent from Recovery.gov.

We also suggest looking regularly at the list of Recovery contracts because winners of federal contract awards might be hiring.  In addition, take a look at USAJobs.gov for federal employment opportunities across the country, and Careeronestop.org for advice and tools, such as resume templates from the Department of Labor.

We’re always looking for more ways to provide information on job opportunities. If you have suggestions or maybe you’ve heard of Recovery projects hiring in your area, let us know.

    This is great information. A lot of our clients are hurting for work and I’m sure adding a few new avenues to getting some income will help many of them. I’ll be sharing this information in our blog for our clients who were unaware of your site’s job searching capabilities. Thanks for the great work you do!

    In difficult times we should be all trying to help each other wherever we can. Using online facilities to help promote employment opportunities is a great way to reach the mass population, as the majority of people have internet access of somekind. Let’s hope some postives come out of these difficult times. Carry on the great work.
