Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that "Jobs Express," a website designed to help New Yorkers who are seeking employment, has helped more than 44,000 individuals find work in the 10 months since its launch.

Jobs Express currently has 71,000 jobs openings listed, an increase of more than 10,000 since the Governor announced the site's launch in October 2011.

Since then, with an average of 106,000 site hits a month, employers added another 10,000 jobs. Additional job postings and site hits have resulted in 44,010 New Yorkers connecting to jobs, with about 8,000 employers.

Jobs Express also features videos that offer advice to job seekers and an electronic job-matching tool known as "Skills Matching and Referral Technology" (SMART), which generates job leads. The Labor Department updates job listings daily.
