New jobs have been created for people who are eager to jump in and out of the workforce, as employers seek to cut back on the number of Americans applying for the same job, the Department of Labor announced Friday.
The online application deadline is Thursday.
The job postings include online job openings, a job description and an application form.
The job openings are available at the U.S. Department of Transportation website.
The Labor Department’s online job search service is available in more than 190 countries.
“With the number that is available now, I think people will be more prepared to apply online and find a job if they do,” said Labor Secretary Thomas Perez, in remarks at a National Press Club breakfast.
“We are making it easier to get ready to apply, and we are working on new ways to encourage employers to hire more Americans.”
The jobs posted are available in most of the U: the District of Columbia, Florida, Iowa, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii.
Other states that will have more opportunities to find jobs online include New York, Florida and California.
In addition, job seekers are encouraged to apply through their employers’ online job boards, and in a few states, employers can set up online chat rooms for applicants.
The jobs offered on the U-S.
Transportation website come with a $10 deposit.
Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To get a job, you need to have a computer, Internet access and a high school diploma or GED, Perez said.
The hiring freeze is being lifted on Sept. 20, 2019, so employers can begin hiring.
The U.K. has seen a dramatic rise in online job postings.
In the past two years, the number has more than doubled.
In December, the government froze all job postings and gave applicants the option to get a computer to fill out their online application.
The U.KS. has now posted nearly 2 million online job listings.
The United States has seen similar trends.
Between January and June, more than 4.3 million jobs were posted online, and nearly 8 million applications were submitted, the Labor Department said.
Job seekers can also apply directly to jobs posted on the federal job board, the department said.
