STATEHOUSE (March 26, 2021) – Hoosiers seeking a better-paying job can use the state's new Hoosier Talent Network website to match to 1 of more than 135,000 job openings, according to State Rep. Shane Lindauer (R-Jasper).

Lindauer said the Indiana Department of Workforce Development's new online tool located at in.gov/dwd connects individuals searching for work directly to employers in their desired location. Companies that are hiring can also use the website to connect with candidates.

"Hoosiers looking for a new career or to find a job with better pay can use this website to search for local opportunities," Lindauer said. "The Hoosier Talent Network is a unique platform that is quick and easy to use, so anyone can navigate through the hundreds of companies looking to hire."

According to Lindauer, the platform is powered by artificial intelligence and can understand a job seeker's skills and capabilities to match them to relevant jobs. To get started, Hoosiers create a profile by answering basic questions about themselves, which takes about 5 minutes. Job recommendations will appear based on qualifications and capabilities. Applications can be submitted through the website or through company career sites.

Lindauer encourages local Hoosiers to visit in.gov/dwd to connect to the Hoosier Talent Network, and other education and training resources.
