Your Federal Tax ID is assigned by the IRS and is also known as your FEIN, and your State Unemployment Tax ID number is assigned by Louisiana Workforce Commission. Many times your company’s accounting or finance department can provide this to you, but if for some reason you do not have one of these, please contact our help desk.

Louisiana Job Connection’s technology considers the details included in your job description to determine the skills and experience needed to fulfill your job opening. Though you may be surprised to see a select candidate as a match, remember that our algorithm considers transferable skills to determine which job seekers qualify for your position.

If you see a candidate that is not relevant to your hiring needs, simply expand the candidate’s profile and select Delete/Not Interested. This action helps make the algorithm even smarter. You can also edit your job posting using our job description builder. For tips on how to receive the best matches possible, refer to the following question.

You may be matching with job seekers from all over the state and possibly out-of-state. This shouldn’t alarm you, in fact it is a good thing!

Because your pool of qualified candidates just got larger without any additional effort.

All candidates that match with your postings will be shown in your match results, except those who have set their profile to private.

You’re all set! After adding all relevant information to your profile and publishing it, all you need to do is wait to hear from potential business partners.

We encourage you to keep your company profile up-to-date and comprehensive so that you can have maximum exposure to potential business partners.
