Free Career Help at Your Library
Thanks to the growing partnership between Workforce Connections’ One-Stop Career Centers and the
Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, local residents are gaining convenient access to our many services.
The Library District currently donates more than 2,500 square feet of space within its libraries to host five One-Stop Career Centers, including the newest one, located inside the state-of-the-art East Las Vegas Library.
This expanding network of One-Stop Career Centers is staffed with professional career coaches offering a wide array of employment and training services.
Connecting Job Seekers & Employers
And, as always, our help is free! That’s because One-Stop Career Centers are funded through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). These federal dollars enable us to offer one-on-one job search assistance, career counseling, as well as résumé writing and interview skills workshops. Our goal is to connect qualified candidates with free education and training for such in-demand careers as nursing, IT, and construction.
In addition, many of our One-Stop Career Centers serve as hubs for vocational rehabilitation, adult literacy, and programs that provide members of our community with access to childcare, food stamps, and other supportive services. We understand that when you are looking for a job, the search itself is sometimes a full-time job. We are here to help you achieve your goals and dreams!
Can One-Stop Career Centers Help You?
We assist with a range of needs: first-time job seekers age 18 and older looking for entry-level employment; people who are trying to re-enter the workforce after being unemployed for any reason; as well as workers who are underemployed and want training to move up the career ladder. To qualify, you need a social security card, proof of Nevada residency, and meet certain eligibility requirements.
We Help Employers, Too!
If you are an employer looking to hire, we can act as your personal recruiter, matching
top candidates to your current job openings. Businesses can even qualify for financial assistance if they are hiring a candidate through a One-Stop Career Center.
Celebrating a Milestone
Together with the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District and other library partners, we recently celebrated our 1,000th customer served. This important milestone means that more people than ever are accessing employment services through our library locations.
By working with our local libraries, we are placing career and employment services into the neighborhoods that need them most, while maximizing the impact of taxpayer dollars. It’s a win- win situation and a model that other Workforce Development Boards are watching across the country. So next time you drop into your local library, please look for our red, white, and blue One-Stop Career Center signs.
A One-Stop Career Center can be your one stop for a new start!
