America's Job Exchange offers recruiters a unique approach that combines online recruitment advertising with OFCCP regulatory compliance services. We offer a complete, cost-effective solution backed by a high level of service. AJE solutions are right for you if you are looking for:
You can advertise your job openings as Job Postings on our broad network of partner and diversity websites. Alternatively, you can post Compliance Jobs as part of our cost-effective OFCCP job distribution and reporting solution to Federal contractors. You can also find the right candidates for your jobs by searching our database of job seeker resumes that include veterans, minorities, people with disabilities and other special groups.
Job Postings are jobs posted to AJE for the purpose of recruiting only. They appear above all other matching jobs in search results. These jobs are syndicated and sponsored on our partner job boards to gain maximum clicks and applies. Job Postings are also distributed to AJE's diversity partners that focus on diverse job seeker communities comprising minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities.
Compliance Job Postings are jobs posted to AJE for the purpose of OFCCP job distribution and reporting. These jobs are actively distributed to state employment delivery systems as well as diverse job seeker communities comprising minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities. Compliance Job Postings can only be purchased through a sales consultant. To talk to a sales consultant now, call 1-866-923-6284.
The purpose of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) is to enforce, for the benefit of job seekers and wage earners, the contractual promise of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity required of those who do business with the Federal government. Please see our white paper, Demystifying OFCCP Compliance for Federal contractors for more information on the history of OFCCP and the AJE solution that can virtually take away the administrative burden of maintaining records and reporting your diversity recruiting efforts.
The America's Job Exchange OFCCP compliance solution is a job distribution service to assist companies that are Federal contractors in meeting their job posting requirements. Historically it was sufficient to simply post jobs on America's Job Bank (AJB) to comply with Federal regulations. Two things have changed since then. First, the government ceased funding of AJB and it closed at the end of June 2007. Second, the government changed the regulation such that posting on any given website is not sufficient. The jobs must be sent to the state job boards or to the appropriate local employment delivery services. This additional step of forwarding jobs that are posted on our site to the appropriate locations is what our OFCCP compliance solution does.
Yes we reach all 50 states with our job distribution service but we do not use the same method for all states.
As job files are loaded into America's Job Exchange we check to see if they are from Federal contractors and if they contain any new jobs. If the answer to both questions is yes then we send the new jobs out via the job distribution service. As a result we forward jobs to the states every day.
AJE has many methods of distributing your jobs to states and diversity partners. One is to send jobs to the state boards and the other is to use the appropriate local employment delivery service. Jobs may also be posted manually to states where a feed is not available.

There is no difference between a job posted online and a job sent via feed. Depending on your purchase (Job Postings or Compliance Jobs), your jobs will be distributed to the relevant partners and/or states, regardless of how you send them to us.
Job Postings are the fastest and most efficient way to engage our pool of qualified job seekers. Your job posting remains live for 60 days on the AJE national site and local state exchanges, and receives a premium placement in search results. As an added value, Job Postings are also distributed to our partner network of specialized sites, including veteran and minority exchanges, One-Stop career centers, and community organizations.
AJE also enhances your job posting with search engine optimization, social media sharing, and job board syndication at no additional cost to you. Your job listing is fully indexed to take advantage of popular search engines and increase your employment visibility. At the same time, AJE promotes your job listing via widely used social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter. Finally, your job listing is syndicated with other leading job boards to maximize traffic.
Job Postings or jobs purchased and posted through our ecommerce portal are only for recruitment purposes. No reporting is provided for jobs purchased online. However, you will have full access to the job and its details even after it expires. If you wish to post jobs for OFCCP compliance and distribution, please contact a sales consultant at 1-866-923-6284.
AJE provides you with insight into how many clicks and applies have been generated on your jobs. You can view this data on the Employer Dashboard, split by the traffic source.
Clicks are the total number of times your job title was clicked to view the job description. They are calculated from the date the job was posted to the date the job expired. Please note this is an estimate of clicks and might not fully count the total number of click from the full AJE distribution network.
Applies are the number of times the "Apply" link was clicked from your job description. Please note that this does not necessarily equal the number of applies to a job as a candidate can abandon the application process mid-way through or decide to apply directly by using an email address. In addition, apply information from some partner sites is not obtainable or reliable.
