Doña Ana County - The New Mexico Economic Development Department along with the Mesilla Valley Economic Development Alliance, Doña Ana Community College and the City of Las Cruces are partnering together to host a "Job to Career Readiness Boot Camp." The event is free to attend and will prepare attendees with successful application and interviewing skills for several companies in the region that are hiring. Recently Governor Susana Martinez announced that three new manufacturers will be locating in Doña Ana County and creating over 600 new jobs.
"This is an amazing opportunity for job seekers to gain or enhance the vital skills needed in applying and interviewing for a job, said Economic Development Department Secretary Jon Barela. "With CNWire, Certoplast and Franco Wholefoods bringing new jobs to the region, prospective employees will be able to gain a tremendous advantage in successfully gaining employment with one of these manufacturers."
The "Job to Career Readiness Boot Camp" will provide an opportunity for residents of the region to not only become acquainted with these opportunities but to prepare them for success in their application and interview process. The camp also focuses on building critical soft skills. Soft skill training is often not addressed in many workforce development training programs but has become more important to employers over the past few years.
There will be three separate boot camps around Doña Ana County to reach as many residents as possible. The boot camps will be hosted from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on:
July 16, 2014 at the Doña Ana Community College East Mesa Campus
July 30, 2014 at the Doña Ana Community College Gadsden Campus
September, 17 2014 at the Doña Ana Community College Sunland Park Campus
Those attending can register for one of the three boot camps by calling 575-527-7538. Space is limited, so interested individuals should reserve their spot as soon as possible.
