AUSTIN, TX — The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) today announced the launch of the mobile-friendly version of its online job-matching resource, WorkInTexas.com. Designed in partnership with Texas.gov, the Texas Department of Information Resources and Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas, the mobile website automatically detects mobile phones and some tablets and is designed to better serve job seekers in Texas by offering the most frequently used features of the full WorkInTexas.com website. The mobile version of the website offers quick, convenient access from mobile devices simply by typing www.WorkInTexas.com  in the address bar.
“TWC is committed to increasing access to the free services we offer,” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar. “We are pleased to work with our local board partners, and in particular Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas, to offer the WorkInTexas.com mobile version, which answers the need for a mobile alternative for on-the-move job seekers.”
WorkInTexas.com’s mobile version allows job seekers to:
• Search for jobs through multiple channels
• Run job match queries
• Apply for jobs
• Maintain lists of pending job applications
• View and manage correspondence and alerts from WorkInTexas.com
• Stay informed of events at local Workforce Solutions offices
“Job seekers now have access to one of the largest job databases in Texas and important job search resources right at their fingertips,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Labor Ronny Congleton. “WorkInTexas.com’s mobile-friendly site is secure and simple to use, and I encourage job seekers to take advantage of this enhanced technology.”
Launched in 2004, WorkInTexas.com is free and hosts approximately 135,000 active job listings and more than 500,000 registered users. WorkInTexas.com also reached a major milestone this year when the number of jobs filled through its services surpassed 2 million.
“With mobile internet use on the rise, TWC recognizes the importance of giving job seekers and employers on-the-go access to WorkInTexas.com,” said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Hope Andrade. “This improvement strengthens this great resource and is yet another step forward in meeting the workforce needs of our Texas employers.”
