Mayor-elect Martin J. Walsh unveiled a new website Tuesday to help Boston residents track his ascent to City Hall and to apply for jobs working for the first new mayor in a generation.

In an e-mail sent to supporters and reporters, Walsh said that Bostonians who supply an e-mail address will be given updates on the transition and can share ideas on how to “build a better Boston.’’


The website is also a conduit for those who want to join Walsh on his transition team or work with him at City Hall, where hiring has been controlled for the past 20 years by Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

“Submit your resume for consideration for possible employment on the Transition Committee or at City Hall,’’ the e-mail states. The web address is Boston14.org.

“Boston begins a new era on Jan. 6,’’ Walsh wrote in the e-mail. “Together, we will write a new chapter in our city’s nearly 400-year history.’’

Walsh defeated Councilor at Large John R. Connolly last week, 52 percent to 48 percent, to become the city’s 48th mayor.

He has already named those who will cochair his transition committee, including three of his former rivals from the preliminary election, Felix G. Arroyo, John F. Barros, and Charlotte Golar Richie.
