If you’ve lost a job, it can be challenging to stay positive. But in reality, you’ve got an opportunity to make a dramatic and meaningful change in your life. Further, your “opportunity” is supported by the local workforce systems backed by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).
Here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, there are a number of workforce systems able to assist the unemployed and the currently underemployed, advance in their careers. Here are some options, depending on where you live:
ComputerMinds.Com works in close association with the WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) program within the TWC (Texas Workforce Commission) in Tarrant County, providing computer training for the unemployed, underemployed, those who have received a notice of termination, veterans, the economically disadvantaged, and at-risk youth.
IT jobs are some of the most rewarding — and sought-after — options supported by WIOA. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that computer and mathematical occupations account for 6 of the 30 fastest-growing occupations. In fact, the need for robust online security will also rise as more connected devices enter homes and workplaces. This increased need for cybersecurity will drive demand for information security analysts, employment of which is projected to grow by 31.6 percent. (Source)
