(TNS) -- California’s Employment Development Department has introduced a free mobile app for job-seekers in the state that the agency says is designed to link qualified workers and employers.

The CalJOBS app, designed for download to smartphones, tablets and other devices, is described in an EDD news release as an extension of the existing online CalJOBS resource center.

That site connects job seekers with nearly 16,000 websites, including federal, state and local government job boards.

Users first need to register at www.caljobs.ca.gov

It takes about 10 minutes to fill out the questionnaire that includes providing a username and password, and answering questions including providing your Social Security number, current employment status, citizenship, education, health questions, use of any assistance programs, and how to reach the registrant.

You will get an email that asks you to confirm your application with a click on a link.

The app can be found by searching for “caljobs” in the Apple iTunes or Google Play sites.

The mobile app, developed by Geographic Solutions Inc., will let job-seekers search for opportunities through keywords and in defined areas – from current location to statewide.

Users can apply through the app, get notifications when sought jobs become available, and navigate to previous searches, favorites and recently reviewed jobs.
