  • automated job matching with skill gap analysis; streamlined resume and job order builders
  • ability to use from mobile devices; improved veterans' priority of service notifications
  • customizable career planning maps, called career lattices, showing job progression opportunities within and across different industries or sectors
  • automated notification of job and resume matches by email or text message, support for more than 60 languages using Google Translate
  • a training provider search
  • and career information system including real-time labor market information reports, such as high growth occupations, best paying occupations, and labor surplus and shortages.

Job seekers can build a resume from scratch or upload an existing resume from any computer or mobile device with internet access.

In addition, employers can access wage information and information on license and credentials relevant to the job order occupation; store, edit, and choose from multiple job location and contact information entries in their address book. Job postings may be sent to NLX with a single click during job posting creation. All job postings received from the NLX automatically generate a return receipt to support full tracking for the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), important for federal contractors.
