Creating an Account

To access AJL's full range of job search options, build or upload your resume, and apply for jobs, you need to create a job seeker account. Creating a job seeker account is free and allows you to take full advantage of AJL's recruitment and labor information services. With a job seeker account you can post resumes, search the AJL database containing thousands of job postings, save a job search profile for future use, and more. This section will walk you through the steps required to create a job seeker account, and explain how to edit or update your account information. The Job Seekers page available from the AJL home page lists the advantages of creating an AJL job seeker account, and provides a button to begin the job seeker account creation process.

Self-Service vs. Staff-Assisted

AJL gives you the choice among managing your own job search activities (self-service), seeking assistance from a workforce professional at your local American Job Center (staff-assisted), or a combination of both. You can use AJL to perform a quick job search without creating an account. However, you cannot view the job details or apply for the job until you have registered for an account, and depending on your state, created a resume.

Even if you choose to begin by creating a self-service account, you can contact your local job center for assistance at any time. Job center staff are trained to guide you through exploring your career interests, creating a resume, registering for job training, contacting a potential employer, and more. To locate the job center nearest you, above the top navigation menu of any AJL page, click Contact Us.
