“Every day, more employers are signing up to join our JobFest – they are ready to help us put Nevadans to work. There is no priority more important for me than Nevada’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Governor Steve Sisolak. “Our State agencies are focused on creating high-paying job opportunities and connecting Nevadans to the skills and resources they need for these jobs.”
Nevada leads the nation in hiring and there are thousands of open jobs in Southern Nevada, according to federal statistics analyzed by DETR. Some job sectors are slower to return to full staff than others, which means now is the time for Nevadans to “Skill Up” to a new career. With partners across the state, there will be many ways to learn about financial assistance.
“Clark County has the highest unemployment rate in the state, and we’re ensuring that job seekers can find employment that works for their family and lifestyle. Right now there are many opportunities for workers to re-tool for life-long meaningful work,” said DETR Director Elisa Cafferata.
