The National Labor Exchange (NLx) is a sophisticated electronic labor exchange network, created in 2007 in a partnership agreement between NASWA and DirectEmployers Association (DirectEmployers). This is an unprecedented public-private partnership that leverages private non-profit-owned technology with existing state workforce agency resources. The NLx collects and distributes job openings exclusively found on over 18,000 corporate career websites and state job banks, and is growing on a daily basis. There are more than 2 million job openings on the NLx at any given time. All NLx services are offered at no cost to state workforce agency customers - both jobseekers and employers - as well as to state workforce agencies and federal partners. Today, all state workforce agencies, including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam, have signed participation agreements with DirectEmployers to operate the NLx.
