Louisiana Economic Development has launched a new website that will seek to connect employers with job seekers in a unique way.

LED Executive Director Kristi Williams said the new website is a "job and employee matching service--very similar to the other matching services that you hear a lot about on online dating type sites."

The new and completely free website, Louisiana Job Connection, matches skills of job seekers to the needs of the employer and matches the best candidate for that employer based on a ranking system.

"It's a way for you to find your dream job or your dream employee very quickly," Williams said. "The tools in the algorithm for the site will do all the matching for you," Williams added, allowing an employer to focus more on the candidate and start talking with them about expectations.
