Replacing America's Job Bank
Vollman, Jim
Community College Journal, v79 n3 p37-38 Dec 2008-Jan 2009
The Job Central National Labor Exchange ( has become the effective replacement for America's Job Bank with state workforce agencies and, increasingly, with community colleges throughout the country. The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) has formed a partnership with Job Central to promote its use throughout the community college system. Colleges can use Job Central at no charge. They can add a simple link to their sites or add a search "widget" that integrates the job search tool right into the college's Web site. A number of colleges already feature the Job Central service at their career centers, and it is part of a larger suite of tools provided by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) through NACElink ( This article provides a little background to help understand the value of Job Central and how it harnessed the power of the Internet on behalf of employers and job seekers.
