BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – State officials say a new website to help match Louisiana employers with job-seekers will open this summer. Gov. Bobby Jindal says the Louisiana Job Connection will open to the public on Aug. 18.

Starting June 13, employers will be able to post openings. Louisiana Economic Development Secretary Stephen Moret, in a news release Tuesday, said employers will only see profiles of job seekers who have the skills they want.

He says recruiters also will be able to broaden or narrow their searches. Moret says employers who have posted jobs on other websites will be able to copy those postings to the new site.
