Job Search Tips from MnWorks.Net

The search menu has changed as well as the search page results.

When you start by selecting any category of interest and your state you'll see the results of the search in the middle column here.

The search results will display first any jobs offered by employers signed up on MnWorks then a larger search of other job posts which are very valid and we have removed duplicates and out of date postings from this section. At times you may find a closed posting which typically is a result of late posting of the job.
