MADISON, Wis. -

The state of Wisconsin is reworking its jobs site to make it easier for people to post resumes.

The Department of Workforce Development site has plenty of potential. State officials said it saw 6,500 more job listings last year than the year before.

Before, applicants had to put their resume data into a standard form. Now they can post their resume directly or link to an external site.

The department said it has been improving the site since its launch in 2008. Besides resume options, the latest improvements include letting users search jobs by keyword, create profiles of themselves that employers can search, and enabling social media.
