OKLAHOMA CITY – August 28, 2009 – A new look, easier navigation, faster content control and a new Web site address has accompanied the new Oklahoma Employment Security Commission (OESC) Web site now located at http://oesc.ok.gov.

At the new OESC Web site, visitors can easily:

• search for jobs; 

• file for unemployment benefits; 

• find qualified workers; 

• view labor market statistics; 

• learn about unemployment insurance; 

• and find information about employment and training.

“The system we use to build and update our Web site gives us more content control and allows us to update our content much more quickly than our previous means,” said John Carpenter, OESC Public Information Officer. “It is a great advantage, because we can communicate with our public in an instant with just a click of a mouse.”  

OESC launched their new Web site utilizing OK.gov’s Content Management System. The site is designed to meet and exceed Oklahoma’s web accessibility standards, as well as have a common look and feel as many other Oklahoma government Web sites.
