MCALLEN, Texas – The Texas Workforce Commission will be hosting an event on Saturday at La Plaza Mall. They will be unveiling their new Work In Texas platform for job seekers.
Although unemployment numbers are down statewide, the Rio Grande Valley region still has some of the highest unemployment numbers in the state. The event is a great opportunity for job seekers to use, interact and engage with the new Work In Texas system.
Officials say they want to make sure the system is being utilized as a tool and accessible to as many people as possible.
Mike Gonzalez, Media Specialist – Workforce Solutions, “These events have been hosted around the state this month. They have been pretty successful because they give job seekers the capabilities to see the improvements in the system and new platform and how we made it easier for job seekers to get to where they need to be.”
The event will be held Saturday, Oct. 12th at La Plaza Mall from 10:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.
