1 Oklahoma Employment Security Commission Labor Exchange Procedures Workforce Services Division – Capacity Building Unit

2 2Oklahoma Employment Security Commission – Workforce Services Division Goals of Oklahoma Labor Exchange Serve job seekers and employers even better by efficiently and effectively bringing together the supply and demand sides of the labor market. Increase outreach to employers and assist employers in recruiting candidates. Clearly define the job order services levels and provide standardized, quality services to employers that reflect the service level they specify. Assist job seekers in entering employment through identifying jobs for which they are qualified. Increase the number of quality referrals by staff to help job seekers find jobs and employers find quality employees.

3 3Oklahoma Employment Security Commission – Workforce Services Division Types of Job Orders Staff-Assisted Job Orders Public-Limited – Job seekers will be able to see all job information (except company contact information), and staff will refer only job seekers who meet at least the minimum qualifications. Public – Job seekers will be able to see all job information (including all contact information) and may contact the employer directly. Self-Service Job Orders Oklahoma JobLink is a self-service system and can be utilized by the employer directly. Center staff are not responsible for the input or maintenance of these job orders. However, staff may (upon the request of an employer) train the employer in the effective use of OJL.

4 4Oklahoma Employment Security Commission – Workforce Services Division Helping Employers Select a Disclosure Level Potential Criteria in Making Disclosure Level Recommendations Public-Limited Specific skills, licenses, credentials, or degrees Specific length of work experience related to the position Pre-screening of applicants is desirable Testing is required Prevailing wage for local area Public No education requirements No prior work experience Temporary positions Apply on-line positions

5 5Oklahoma Employment Security Commission – Workforce Services Division Helping Employers Select a Disclosure Level Advantages of Public-Limited Disclosure Level A staff person will manage the job order. Regular contact will be made with the employer in order to ensure employer satisfaction. Company name and contact information will not be visible to job seekers and interested applicants will be directed to the Workforce Center for application instructions. This will eliminate excessive traffic to the employer. Staff will review applicant qualifications and refer only those who meet the minimum qualifications established by the employer. This saves the employer time in the interview process. Staff pre-screening of applicants and management of job order eases the burden of the hiring process on employers.

Staff will compose job description and tasks from the O*NET on line occupational network unless the employer provides staff with a detailed job description. The O*NET description, when used, must include the occupational summary description and 3-5 tasks associated with that occupation. The job order is to be free of spelling and grammatical errors and discriminatory language.
