For the employer
Kentucky’s new employer job posting portal, Focus Talent, allows employers to post job openings and search for resumes.
Employers may upload an existing description or use the Focus Talent Job Post Wizard to build the job description with a skills-based questionnaire.
Unlike traditional job-match systems, Focus Talent and Focus Career cast a much wider net to find the skills a job requires. If you choose you will no longer receive job matches only for “the most qualified” candidates, but also for those candidates who possess some but not all of the skills you requested. Candidates are ranked from one to five stars based on how well they qualify for your job opening.
To access Focus Talent, visit: Focustalent.ky.gov.
If you are using the online Focus Talent system, the help link provides an email pop-up to contact our help desk. It also includes technical information for Focus Talent and appropriate browsers.
