Why do you ask for my Social Security number during registration?

You do not have to provide your Social Security number (SSN). We ask for it for two reasons. First, it will identify if you already have an account in the system. Second, we ask for your SSN to collect data for federal workforce reporting. If you choose to enter your SSN, we will keep it secure and confidential. We will share it with state partner agencies only if you want us to. For more information on the security of your data, visit our Privacy Policy .

Why do I have to answer so many questions when I register?

All of the questions we ask during your account registration are used to help us help you. The answers help us match you with the jobs and the workforce programs that are most helpful for you. We also use the information to send reports to the federal government about how state job banks are being used. For more information on the security of your data, visit our Privacy Policy.
