History

America's Job Exchange continues the legacy of America's Job Bank, a pioneer in online recruitment. Started in 1995 by the Department of Labor, America's Job Bank offered online search capabilities to help Americans find jobs. It continued to introduce innovative functionalities like resume posting, interactive posting, and career-related content to help prepare job seekers to find a job. By 2000 it had become one of the largest employment sites in the US. The Department of Labor gradually slowed down the program after its peak in 2004, and fully retired the Job Bank during the summer of 2007.

America's Job Bank was developed by Applied Theory Corp. and supported by NaviSite, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise hosting and application solutions that acquired Applied Theory in 2004. After America's Job Bank was retired, NaviSite launched America's Job Exchange to continue the Job Bank's legacy of superior service to job seekers and employers. Within 90 days of launch, AJE had more than a million visitors and a half-million job posts. To keep true to the legacy of America's Job Bank, AJE continued relationships with several states and consortiums by creating and maintaining state career sites, as well as helping federal contractors try to meet their web specific OFCCP distribution requirements.

America's Job Exchange is headquartered in Wilmington, Massachusetts.
