NEW YORK — Former New York Gov. David Paterson has taken on a new post with a company that aims to streamline job recruiting.
Paterson will be the "chief jobs officer" for the Job Channel Network. Parent company Jasper Group Holdings Inc. announced Paterson's new role Monday.
Paterson says in a statement that he's seen from both public and private life that people from all backgrounds share the need for a job.
CEO Michael Woloshin says Job Channel Network's new online platform lets a hiring manager review a resume and book an interview with a click of a button, among other functions. The company also sets out to create and distribute video and audio pieces presenting companies to prospective employees.
Paterson became governor after Eliot Spitzer's 2008 resignation and served until 2010.
