A new career may be as close as the local library. Workforce Connections, southern Nevada’s Local Workforce Development Board, in partnership with the Las Vegas Clark County Library District, is pleased to announce the opening of a One-Stop Career Center on the campus of the Mesquite Library. Partnering with the library district allows us to bring the much-needed services to communities like Mesquite.
Through federal funding, the One-Stop Career Centers offer valuable resources needed during a job search — whether jobseekers are looking for entry-level employment, have been dislocated from a former career and are trying to re-enter the workforce, or if they are underemployed and wish to move up the career ladder.
Career coaches work one-on-one with community members to help write an effective resume, teach job interview skills, offer supportive services, provide on-the-job training, and secure training or certification opportunities at no cost to the participant. Additional services, such as adult literacy and other programs are also offered at most centers.
“These partnerships are an excellent example of good stewardship of public funds,” said Jaime Cruz, Workforce Connections Executive Director. “By leveraging publicly-funded systems, we can expand critical employment and training services in our community without additional infrastructure costs.”
Workforce Connections also operates a comprehensive One-Stop Career Center located at 6330 W. Charleston Boulevard, #190, Las Vegas, NV 89146 (located across from the College of Southern Nevada). In addition to libraries, affiliate centers are located across southern Nevada.
