Workforce Solutions has New Mobile Unit to serve Southeast Texas

Workforce Solutions Southeast Texas has received its mobile unit, the new 'workforce on wheels'. The vehicle is more compact and easier to maneuver through traffic and park than previous units. Installed on board is a total of seven personal computers, each with 24 inch viewing monitors with access to the Internet wherever cell phone service is available. A 40 inch LCD monitor is also in the mobile lab and will be used for viewing tutorials, webinars, and other media presentations.

Job seekers using the mobile unit will have access to most of the services usually offered in a full-service workforce center including job search assistance, creating resumes, updating profiles, completing on-line applications and researching labor market information. "The new mobile unit will be valuable for assisting job seekers and employers during disaster recovery", stated Mary Hammon, Deputy Director. "In addition, we can bring services to job seekers in rural areas of the workforce development area and assist businesses during special employment situations." The new mobile unit is totally ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible and includes a rear lift device with capacity of up to 800 pounds.
