The Workforce Connection of Central New Mexico oversees four one-stop locations. Staff can assist in providing quality resources for people exploring career opportunities, and also support local job providers. Priority industries in the region include healthcare, construction, and green energy.
The Workforce Connection of Central New Mexico also promotes its services to neighborhood organizations, getting them involved in job fairs. For example, TriCore Reference Laboratories offered a Phlebotomy Apprenticeship Program, which resulted in a partnership with Albuquerque Job Corps, a program that supplied a majority of Phlebotomy Apprentices. Then, UNM's Department of Continuing Education implemented the necessary curriculum.
The Mid Region Council of Governments is the administrative entity and fiscal agent for the New Mexico Workforce Connection, overseeing services in Bernalillo, Torrance, Sandoval and Valencia Counties. The program receives federal funding under the Workforce Investment Act.
