MDES launches new website
The Mississippi Department of Employment Security announces the launch of its new website.
It was built using newer technology that allows the agency to better meet the needs of its users.
Individuals can use the website to search for jobs, find training opportunities, access job hunting tips and file for unemployment benefits. Business users can register their businesses online, post jobs, find information about tax credits or training credits and manage their Unemployment Insurance Tax accounts.
According to Mark Henry, MDES executive director, “Our new site offers a cleaner, more user-friendly way for our customers to access our programs and services. We worked hard to remove the government jargon from the site and make it easier for our customers to understand.”
“I applaud MDES for launching its new website that is more user-friendly, transparent and easier to navigate for Mississippians to use,” said Governor Phil Bryant.
The website includes links to the agency’s social media sites and displays announcements from its Twitter feed on the home page. MDES uses Facebook and Twitter to connect with customers about available jobs or announcements.
The new website is available at mdes.ms.gov.
