Employer Access to Workforce Connection Centers: The New Mexico Workforce Connection offers employers access to qualified, trained, pre-screened applicants and resources at one location.
On-line Convenience: Employers are often too busy to be occupied with hiring needs during regular business hours. On-line you can: define skills and post job orders to find potential candidates; research labor market information on salaries and economic data; set up a virtual recruiter search agent to automatically find candidates within New Mexico that match the job skills of the job order; and communicate with job seekers, case managers, training providers and others within the system. Email registration is required for some of the services (see Business Services).
Qualified Applicant Referrals: Applicants are pre-screened so employers can immediately view specific skills, work history and dependability of potential hires.Learn about our skills-based assessments and contact our Business Services team.
On-the-Job Training: We provide job training services for underemployed individuals. Employers who hire an eligible individual under a job training contract will be reimbursed for 50% of that employee's wages for the length of their contract, with the optimum result being permanent, full-time employment of the individual upon completion of the training period.
Job Fairs: We have the capability to set up job fairs to showcase your company so that potential employees can find out first-hand what your business has to offer.
Layoff Assistance: We can assist in addressing mass layoffs by providing services to workers dislocated by plant closures and layoffs, as well as provide regular dislocated worker activities.
