DeWITT, N.Y. — The DeWitt–based Manufacturers Association (MACNY) announced it is providing member companies a new career portal to help them find potential job applicants and to assist job seekers in securing employment.

MACNY’s career and talent platform is an online hub for job postings and candidate résumés.

The service is free to candidates, allowing them to share their résumé with participating companies statewide, MACNY said.

“With the current skills gap and labor shortage, it has become more difficult” for some companies to attract and retain skilled employees, MACNY said. For many years, the organization has maintained a résumé bank that allowed candidates to forward their résumé to MACNY, which would then share it with member companies searching for candidates.

“We have seen an increasing number of requests for both résumé and job postings,” Randy Wolken, president & CEO of MACNY, said in a statement. “The time was right to launch this new system and provide a more sophisticated, effective method of talent selection for companies, candidates, and the community.”

MACNY says the benefits for its members include “unlimited” job postings to over 100 job boards including Indeed, LinkedIn, and Zip Recruiter.

They also include access to potential candidates through searchable résumés, including apprentices; personalized dashboards for hiring managers to view open jobs and applicants; access to a talent-management system; system training and administration support; and opportunities for advertising hiring events, including career fairs.

Those interested in joining MACNY’s career and talent network can visit: careers-macny.icims.com, the association said.
