A job developer (or employment outreach specialist) is a human resources and marketing professional whose responsibility is to fill the gap between unemployed jobseekers and the work available in their communities. Found within social service agencies both in the private and public sectors, job developers are responsible for creating job opportunities for clients of their organization by researching, identifying and soliciting commitments from possible sources of employment. Additionally, they may provide clients with soft skills training.
