With business booming and unemployment in Texas at an all-time low, the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) is unveiling a new platform to streamline the hiring process in a tight labor market. Prompted by a statewide listening tour with stakeholders and input from Texans, TWC is relaunching its WorkInTexas.com, the state’s premier job site with new features designed to improve talent and job matching.
“One of the reasons new businesses move to Texas daily is because of our workforce. We want to ensure every Texan who wants a job can obtain one, and that every employer has access to a pipeline of skilled workers,” said TWC Chairman and Commissioner Representing the Public Bryan Daniel. “The relaunch of WorkInTexas.com combines the job matching services TWC is known for with the tools needed to match technological trends. These new features will increase the ways in which TWC can support continued economic growth across our great state.”
New functionality WorkInTexas.com includes resume upload, build and versioning, resume scoring, and a Virtual Recruiter, which works 24/7 to match employees to jobs. Job seekers also have the option to interact with knowledgeable staff at 180 Texas Workforce Solutions offices around the state, which includes access to computer labs, job search related classes, hiring events and referrals to employers.
The Texas Workforce Commission will work with its local workforce solutions offices to conduct outreach events throughout Texas to bring the WorkInTexas.com experience to the people who can benefit from it the most. Fall outreach events will be conducted in Lubbock, the Rio Grande Valley, Dallas and San Antonio.
