Labor employment services now available in more than 20 southwestern Idaho mobile locations

KIFI

BOISE, Idaho (KIF) - Idahoans living in remote, rural areas in southwestern Idaho can now get help finding a job in 21 Idaho Department of Labor mobile locations throughout southwestern Idaho.

Customized services like help finding a new job, access to training resources or landing a job that pays well can now be found in rural communities like Cascade, Council, Eagle, Emmett, Garden City, Garden Valley, Glenns Ferry, Grand View, Horseshoe Bend, Kuna, McCall, Meridian, Middleton, Midvale, Mountain Home, New Meadows, Payette, Star, Weiser as well as two locations in Boise.

“Our mobile office model is for Idaho citizens without a Labor office in their community,” Department of Labor Director Jani Revier said. “Thanks to partnerships with local libraries, community centers, city halls and other organizations, our footprint is larger now than ever before, and we’re able to deliver face-to-face services to more Idahoans in rural communities throughout the state.”

All the department’s mobile locations offer walk-in hours and appointments for help with writing resumes, filling out job applications, preparing for an interview, accessing job training resources, filing for unemployment insurance benefits and other services.

Labor services are also available for businesses including support for listing jobs, recruiting employees, organizing hiring events, hosting employer seminars and providing access to job training programs.

Labor’s nine American Job Center offices – Post Falls, Lewiston, Caldwell, Boise, Twin Falls, Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Sandpoint and Burley – continue to offer a full slate of employment services and are open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
