Finding a new job can be tough. Thanks to the Rock Springs Workforce Center, part of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, job seekers have a wealth of resources and support at their fingertips.
“We are a federally funded State resource that provides employment and business services. People can contact us before they relocate to the area to start their job search long distance,” says Pat Brown, Rock Springs Workforce Center Supervisor. The first step is to visit the agency’s website at www.wyomingatwork.com. Here, individuals can browse job openings, post a resume or link to other resources.
“Once folks arrive in the area, they can visit our local office to build on their electronic job search activities with individual assistance from friendly, professional staff. Support services include job applications, resume-writing assistance and use of our computer area for online applications,” Brown says.
The office has information on education and training of value in the local job market, vocational rehabilitation, veterans’ employment, career exploration and aptitude testing. “We are available to provide assistance to primary wage earners, as well as those seeking part-time or after-school employment, summer work or opportunities to supplement a retirement income,” Brown adds.
Businesses can also find resources at the center. “We’re here to meet your employment needs,” Brown says.
