How it works

How it works

  1. Jobs are collected from authentic sources—no duplicates or scams
  2. Jobs are refreshed and provided daily to government/nonprofit sites—no dead links
  3. Jobs are made available to job seekers

Regardless of where a job seeker discovers an NLx job opening, they will be returned to the point of origin: either the corporate careers website or the state job bank.
