Jobs NJ at a Glance


The Murphy Administration is hard at work implementing the Governor’s economic plan, “The State of Innovation: Building a Stronger and Fairer Economy in New Jersey,” and higher education plan, “Where Opportunity Meets Innovation: A Student-Centered Vision for New Jersey Higher Education.” 

Jobs NJ: Developing Talent to Grow Business in the Garden State builds on these plans with a collaborative effort to re-establish New Jersey’s leadership.

Jobs NJ has two mutually reinforcing objectives, each integral to the Governor’s vision of a stronger and fairer New Jersey:

1. Ensure all career-seeking New Jerseyans have the education and training necessary to access high-quality employment.

2. Ensure businesses and employers that are offering high-quality employment in New Jersey can quickly and efficiently fill their talent needs


Opportunities for Growth:

Talent is one of New Jersey’s strongest competitive advantages, but we must continue to enhance our Talent Development System, by focusing on three key opportunities:

1. Support all New Jerseyans to obtain education and training and find high-quality jobs
2. Better align Talent Development System programs and employer needs
3. Connect employers and job-seekers



Jobs NJ lays out three strategies to address New Jersey’s talent challenges from two sides: increasing the supply of qualified workers and creating talent solutions that connect companies to job-seekers:

1. Expand access to opportunity
2. Train individuals for in-demand jobs
3. Match talent to jobs
