From Nevada JobConnect and the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation:

In an effort to put more Nevadans back to work, Nevada JobConnect is hosting a special campaign in Carson City, Douglas County, and Lyon County to get more employers to list their job openings with the state's One-Stop Employment Centers.

Nevada JobConnect and the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation (DETR) Employment Security Division are inviting employers to participate in its second Job Quest campaign being held in Carson City from March 10, 2014 to March 15, 2014.

Governor Brian Sandoval is encouraging employers to take advantage of this opportunity to improve the state's economy while learning about the benefits of partnering with Nevada JobConnect.

"Nevada JobConnect has played an important role in linking unemployed Nevadans with companies with job openings. The training and workforce development services JobConnect provides is a lifeline to many who are unemployed and it has proven invaluable to businesses seeking employees that fit their specific labor needs," said Governor Brian Sandoval. "This arrangement is incredibly beneficial to both employers and jobseekers. I encourage businesses throughout our state to partner with Nevada JobConnect."

Ten business service associates in the Carson City area will meet with employers in hopes of developing partnerships that will lead to hiring opportunities for their companies. They will contact more than 1000 businesses by email, U.S. postal services and/or personal visits.

"Nevada JobConnect enjoys a wonderful partnership with the business community statewide and we hope this Job Quest will be successful in introducing even more businesses to the services we provide," DETR Director Frank Woodbeck said. "There are still many businesses that could benefit greatly from developing a relationship with Nevada JobConnect."

Some of the services Nevada JobConnect offer employers include screening potential employees, on-site interviewing, and assistance with placement and training. Additionally, through the Governor's Silver State Works program, employers can benefit from financial incentives for hiring unemployed workers.

Businesses that would like to learn more about these services should contact the Carson City JobConnect at 1929 N. Carson Street or call (775) 684-0400. You can also learn more at www.nevadajobconnect.com.
