It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since TWC held a press conference in the North Austin Workforce Solutions Office to announce the launch of WorkInTexas.com.
We’ve come a long way since then, listing 5 million jobs, connecting 55 million employers & job seekers, and directly filling 2.1 million of those jobs. We’ve also weathered natural disasters, a national recession, and had to roll with huge changes in how employers hire and people find jobs. Suffice to say it’s been a busy 10 years.
Over these years we’ve been lucky to be part of the employment solution for many, and we have many to thank. None more important than employers and job seekers who put their trust in the public workforce system, and none more critical than local workforce solutions staff who deliver those solutions. Thank you, for your business, your patience, your dedication and your support. We couldn’t do it without you!
So with an eye to the future and knowing that technology advancements, recruiting practices, and user expectations and behaviors have all changed, today we find ourselves at another cross-road. To remain relevant we must rethink our expectations of what WorkInTexas.com is, and what it needs to be, and for that we need your help. Please take a minute to comment on this post and tell us what you’d like to see from the system in the years to come. Your input is greatly appreciated.
