JOBSEEKERS TO ENJOY COMPUTER KIOSK ACCESS

JOBSEEKERS TO ENJOY COMPUTER KIOSK ACCESS

Several county commissioners, working with a local employment advocacy group, have received three computers to help jobseekers search area employment listings.

The Southwest Area Workforce Investment Act Board, of which District 4 Commissioner D. Kent Evans is chairman, has set up computer kiosks that will enable residents to search job postings, develop résumés, apply on-line and access the Workforce Investment Act website.

District 1 Commissioner Oscar Vásquez Butler chose to post a kiosk at the Vado/Del Cerro Community Center. District 2 Commissioner Arturo Terrazas had the WIA place a computer at the Anthony Community Center. Evans worked with the Village of Hatch Library to have a kiosk in the north part of the county. The county Information Technology Department provided the technical services of getting the kiosks networked and on-line.

SAWIAB administrator Jerry Kloeppel will discuss the services provided to and proposed for county residents at Tuesday’s regular Board of County Commissioners meeting at 9 a.m. Also on the agenda, the BOCC will vote on an intergovernmental agreement approving the method of allocating potential liability relating to the Workforce Investment Act.
