Gov. Dave Heineman announced Wednesday a new mobile app for smartphones and tablets to aid in searching for Nebraska jobs is now available.

There are currently approximately 35,000 Nebraska jobs posted on NEworks and nearly 25,000 resumes of qualified job seekers. The mobile app gives users the option to search jobs by company, job title and location. The app is available for download in the App Store and Google Play by searching NEworks on Android devices or Nebraska Jobs on Apple devices. Once in the app, the Jobs Nearby feature quickly identifies jobs in the user’s immediate area.

In addition to the mobile app, Nebraska’s Chambers of Commerce and economic development organizations across the state have begun placing Local Jobs buttons on their websites that link to NEworks. The employment opportunities searchable via the Local Jobs buttons showcase job openings in the surrounding areas.

“The local jobs initiative leverages each organization’s technological resources to directly promote employment opportunities in local communities and regions,” said Lang. “Employers will benefit from the increased exposure to their current openings.” offers a full menu of employment tools and resources for both employers and job seekers. The site contains career exploration resources, employer information, assessment tools and labor market data.
