Work Based Learning

Work-based learning (WBL) provides more opportunities for workers to earn income while gaining critical job skills. The positive impact to workers, employers, and the economy is substantial through effective work-based learning programs.

This umbrella term covers many services available to our customers.

Hiring Events

We would love to help you grow your workforce!

The Business Service Team will assist with recruitment through virtual and in-person hiring events and job fairs. Our team will help organize a single employer hiring event at any one of our American Job Centers, or onsite at your location. Our Business Services Team will work with you to promote your event on social media and through our partner network.

Interview space is also an available service at our American Job Centers!

Hot Jobs List

Hot Jobs is a collection of job openings in our 7-county area, focused around the American Job Center locations: Claremore, Bartlesville, Miami and Pryor. The list is disseminated biweekly to our partner organizations that work directly with job seekers.

Let us know about your company’s open positions to be added to the Hot Jobs List. The NEWDB strives to post new and relevant job openings.

Job Postings

Oklahoma Job Match is a self-service job posting tool that allows employers to post job openings and search resumes to identify talent. As a user, the employer will be able to save resumes of qualified candidates, receive resume match alerts, and promote their company profile. We encourage employers to keep in mind that everyone receiving unemployment benefits in Oklahoma is required to be registered on this site, and because this site is part of the workforce development system, there is no cost to employers or job seekers!

Skills Based Hiring

Skillful Talent Series
Hiring the right employee is now more important than ever. As the economy changes, our hiring practices should adapt and ensure we hire the best employee possible. A skills-based approach to hiring can increase retention by up to 65% and improve staff performance. This workshop will assist hiring manager in attracting the right candidates based on their skills and not proxy. SKILLFUL® Talent Series is a four-part workshop series designed for you to learn and use skills-based hiring and employment practices to hire and retain the right employees. Skillful Talent can be done in a group setting, 1-1, virtual or in person.
