Skills Matching and Referral Technology (SMART)

SMART Resume Builder, Job Matching, and Insight Tool

Do you want to create a resume by answering some yes or no type questions? Do you want to easily enhance your current resume?

  • SMART can help you create or enhance a resume with very little typing. The statements it uses to build your resume use the language that businesses are asking for, and that other job seekers are using in their resumes. These strong statements lay a strong foundation for your resume and will help you be competitive when applying for jobs.

Do you want to try something other than keyword matching?

  • SMART Job Matching reads your resume and understands the knowledge, skills and abilities you have gained through your experiences. The system asks: "Who are you?" and "Where are you going?" It then recommends potential career opportunities where your skills can apply.

Would you like to find jobs that you may not find with other key word search sites?

  • You may have skills for a job that you have not considered and would not find in a traditional job search. SMART can help you open the door to more opportunities by matching your skills to new kinds of job openings -- jobs that keyword searches won't find.

Would you like to set up an automatic search agent that will send you job lead e-mails as often as daily, with your daily top 10 job leads?

  • SMART looks for new job leads every day, sending you the top 10 job leads per day (or once per week when no strong leads are available). Each e-mail has job leads rated on a five-star scale, and the links for the full job openings. If you are interested in applying for a job, simply follow the job opening’s directions. No employer will see your resume unless you choose to apply for the job, and send it when you apply.

Would you like to find out about real-world employees in the type of position you are looking for? Would you like to explore what jobs they have held previously? SMART’s Insight Tools allow you to:

  • Explore the skills, education, and experience of real workers in jobs such as the one you seek
  • Find out what career paths others have taken before being employed in their current position
  • Single out a specific job opening, and find more jobs like that one

If you are interested in working with all of the SMART features, contact your local New York State Career Center! Or to only generate job leads from your resume and have the leads e-mailed to you within 48 hours, submit your resume to SMART@labor.ny.gov.
