    NEVADA Workforce Readiness

        Our Mission is to provide a centralized list of resources to prepare, train, and connect Nevada job seekers with Nevada employers.         

     

    Select Your Workforce Category

    This website is created and maintained by the Nevada Society for Human Resources Managers (SHRM) State Council and the northern and southern SHRM chapters. Though hosted on SHRM’s website, the resources listed directly below are for the Nevada public, not just HR professionals.​
    Help us keep this website current! To add or update resources to this site, please email us at nvworkforcereadiness@gmail.com.
     

    Note: Local job postings can be found on numerous websites and are NOT provided on this site. With the exception of Nevada System of Higher Education and Nevada non-profit organizations. This site provides resources to job seekers on how to search and train for jobs and to employers on how to find employees in the skill areas they need.


    For Employers:

    This section includes information for employers looking to grow or improve their workforce.  Employers of all sizes can utilize these resources and “How To Guides” on a variety of subjects.  Click the links below to gather more information available to employers through these valuable programs and opportunities.  As Nevada continues to appeal to out of state employers and our population continues to grow, identifying skilled workforce will become increasingly difficult so utilizing every resource available will be imperative.  Employers can start training new and existing employees while  enhancing existing skills so an effective workforce can also be grown from within.

Typically internship opportunities are only for current students and tend to end once the student graduates.  Internships can be paid or unpaid, possibly taken for credit, and can be part-time or full-time.  In regards to whether an internship is paid or not, the U.S. Department of Labor has specific guidelines (http://www.dol.gov/whd/regs/compliance/whdfs71.pdf). Internships can be found by looking directly at company websites, using job aggregators, or by approaching an employer directly.  Below are websites to help you locate internships.

    Staffing Agencies / Employment Services

    Services of this nature provide a valuable resource for Job Seekers.  Use of the employment process conducted by each individual provider offers new insights for a candidate.  Some services are niche marketed (specializing in specific career areas like I.T. or medical).  Others offer Temp-to-Hire positions (you get to try before you buy).  Some are “Direct Hire” recruiters (acting as the recruiting department for a client company).  Still more provide temporary jobs (when you are just looking for a source of income).  A little bit of research will aid in your job quest as you can choose who you work with or which company would seem best to fit your needs.  In all cases they offer practice in filling out applications, interviewing, resume reviews, skill testing or training.  In all cases this activity is a version of “networking”.  The more people you have working for you to find that good, well qualified career option the better off you will be.  Finding a place to start is as easy as putting “staffing agencies Reno NV” into the Google search bar and making the call.
