Cuomo: More than 25,000 NYers hired in 4 months through innovative 'Jobs Express' website

ALBANY, N.Y. - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says more than 25,000 New Yorkers have landed jobs in the last four months through the innovative "Jobs Express" website.

The state website compiles employment openings in the state jobs bank by region and type of work. Businesses can post openings for free.

The state website allows job hunters to narrow their search by their qualifications, regions and types of jobs.

Now, union apprenticeships will also be listed.

Jobs Express is updated daily.

The site also includes advice on seeking jobs and provides what Cuomo calls an electronic job-matching tool.
