OnRamp FOR JOB SEEKERS

New Jersey’s most powerful job search tool, where talent meets opportunity. With almost 10,000 New Jersey employers registered to list jobs and search our resumes for new employees and roughly 100,000 job listings in New Jersey alone, OnRamp represents an exciting and powerful new tool to ‘fast forward’ your job search!

Your Job Search Starts With Your Resume. No matter what kind of job you’re seeking, most employers want to see your resume before they’ll even talk to you. Working on your resume may seem like a chore, but it’s actually a great way to start planning and collecting the information you’ll need for a successful job search. That’s why OnRamp starts by helping you build a complete, detailed resume that includes the skills and experience employers are looking for. If you’ve already written your resume, you can simply upload or paste it into OnRampTM. Think of your resume as a work in progress – you can go back and change it anytime and we’ll even help you improve it! Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression… and that’s why your resume needs to be the best it can be.

What you can expect from OnRamp: 

  • Simple upload and use of an existing resume and online tools to easily build a new resume;
  • Resume enhancing tools that suggest ways to improve your resume;
  • The ability to search job opportunities collected from over 2,400 sources in one place;
  • Automatic email notices of new jobs matching your skills and experience;
  • Matches to jobs you have the skills for, but may not have considered applying to; and,
  • You control what information an employer can see and how you are contacted by employers who wish to interview you.
