JOBView: Thousands of Jobs at Your Finger Tips!

The Austin Public Library has a very handy new tool for job seekers called JOBView. The database serves as an aggregator for job openings within the state of Texas as well as the rest of the country. Position descriptions can be printed, emailed, or sent to your cell phone in the form of a text message. The database will automatically route you to the employer’s or program’s website in order to apply.

Other features include:

  • Job searches can be statewide or isolated to a specific city.
  • The job radius search feature allows you to look for employment within a set distance from the center of a chosen city.
  • Search only for Hourly and Part Time positions.
  • Search for jobs in specific categories such as Accounting and Finance, Construction/Trades, Government/Military, Hospitality/Travel, Law Enforcement/Security, Non-Profit/Volunteer, Retail, Sales, etc.
  • Federal Contractors with Veteran Preference and Work in Texas positions are clearly noted.
  • A general search will list all jobs within the category as well as the employer. Click on the position’s title to see the full job description.
