Discussion 29: We Support Our Job Seekers!

Job Club Heart of Texas, Job Search | 52 comments

As you know, we are constantly looking for ways to assist you in your efforts to find work. We would first like to remind you of the many services that Workforce Solutions could provide you with, including the following:

Universal (core) Services for individuals seeking assistance in their job search, e.g., outreach, intake, and an eligibility determination for additional WIA-funded services.

Intensive services for individuals deemed in need of additional assistance in order to become employed, e.g., comprehensive and specialized assessment of the skill level and service needs of adults and dislocated workers.

Training services for individuals deemed in need of training in order to become employed or retain employment, e.g, on-the-job training, occupational skills training for nontraditional employment.

Support services such as child care, transportation, and work-related expenses when needed by the individual to work or participate in a WIA-funded activity.

Dislocated worker services specific to workers who have been laid off because of a plant closure or other dislocation. These services include job search assistance, introduction to job search tools, labor market information, access to computers, instruction on resume writing, financial planning, stress management, and referral to vocational skills training as appropriate.

One service in particular stands out to us and we would like to put this one in the spotlight: Support services such as child care, transportation, and work-related expenses when needed by the individual to work or participate in a WIA-funded activity.

This service is one that must FIRST be applied for in order to be determined eligible. We will be offering our assistance if you would like to apply. Our team will keep applications available for you within The Workforce Center. Just ask for Rachel, Sheena, or Melvin and any one of us will get you set up to apply.

Have a great day!


There will be a Showcase and Job Fair Event held on Wednesday, February 13th from 10AM-2PM.

The following positions will be interviewed for at the Showcase Event:





If you are interested in any of these, you will need to email us ASAP at Rachel@campusjobxpress.com for a chance to interview with hiring companies on February 13th.

    I’ve been impressed with the Texas Workforce team and by the amount of effort that goes in to trying to help with finding employment…childcare, transportation etc.
    I look forward to finding out what jobs and company will be represented at the Feb. job fair.

    thank you for the information, you work hard behind the scenes. I’m sure this information will help job seekers. There is alot of help for the asking. Also, some job club members have worried about when benefits end, being thrown to the wolves. There are alot of resources for the asking, tools to assist, classes offered, advice for help. There are more resources now than ever. Several job fairs in the near future. Thank you campusjobxpress.com, even job club is a tool that was not there a year ago… HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

    Hello Job seekers. Another week of job searching. I have been looking at a list of approved job searches that was given to me at the reassesment appt. I find it to be informative. Nothing listed for me however I will keep checking on each one. Not far from being one year since I became unemployed. It is a daily struggle to keep upbeat.

    Good Morning, Carolyn here.
    Thank you for the information. It’s appreciated.
    Saw some job listings on Craigslist last night some may be interested in in Administration. My qualifications are a little short of their requirements. Those looking for that field, I’d suggest taking a look.
    Hope everyone has a good day. God Bless You.

  27. ioniajones

    Ionia Jones here! Thanks for the information. I have one question, “What type of work related expenses does Workforce assist unemployed workers with?” I was driving around this week and noticed that Dollar Tree and Melrose had some vacancies. Dollar Tree had sales associate and cashier positions available and Melrose had some part-time positions. To inquire, go to Melrosestore.net/careers.html and DollarTree.com. Good luck this week, guys!

  30. William

    Well this will be my last post in job club as I have exhausted all my benefits that have been afforded to me from TWC. I would like to say it has been real and it has been fun but it just has not been real fun. No money equal no gas, no work search, no rent, no electricity, no place to live. So i guess I will be living in my car or on the street in the next month. Thanks for your support. So I would like to say goodbye to everyone here and thanks for nothing. I know I will not get a comment because I have never gotten a comment on anything I have written in the past. I would leave my e-mail but I will not have internet soon so I would not be able to see the message and then my phone will be cut off so then I will not be able to receive the calls either.

  31. Gary McCully

    Truly sad William.

  32. Michael Dutton

    Thanks for the information.

  33. cjxpadmin

    We try to see that everyone gets a response to any inquiries that they make. What we need from you, in order to assist your job search, is the type of fields you would be willing to accept work in so that we may match you to a hiring company.

    Keep in mind that you are always welcome to communicate with us and utilize the resources we provide regardless of benefit status. Do not give up hope. So long as you keep your chin up, you will continue to see the sun on each bright day.

    If you would, email us at rachel@campusjobxpress.com with your WIT ID # and a resume. If you do not have a resume let us know and we will help you construct one. Please respond as quickly as possible.

  35. Diana Marquez

    Thank you for the informatio..

  36. J C Riggs

    Thanks for all you do

  37. William

    I am sorry that you thought my commit was sad. I really haven’t had any luck finding a job and no one has helped me in finding a job. I was under the impression that job club was to help people find jobs try ans I might the jobs that I am qualified to do there is nothing here. I have to go out of Waco to even get an interview. I am to the point that I am willing to do almost anything to get back to work. I have been busting my butt putting in resumes and business cards in anyplace I could. Now I have no money and no prospects for any help so I am on the fast track to homelessness to be another statistic and to be dropped of the unemployment numbers so the unemployment rate will drop or go up either way I won’t be counted anymore. What is really sad is no one really cares that much either way. A few people I know have tried to help but others can care less. So sorry for my rant but my life sucks and I can’t keep my chin up any more there is just too much despair in my life to really care much now.

  38. markbeadle

    Thanks for the information.

  39. Melvin

    I do not want you to apologies, we are here to help. Please come in to the workforce center and bring your resume. I do not want to see you homeless. Between our various teams, I want to see what we can find to help you get through this difficult time. When you come to the center ask for Melvin at the front desk. Do this on Tuesday 10:30, this is when I will be in Waco.

    Let us give it all we have, okay?
