Governor Sisolak Tours Career Center, Nevada Reaches All-Time Employment High

Following the news that Nevada has surpassed its all-time employment high by 3,000 jobs, yesterday Governor Sisolak toured a One-Stop Career Center at the East Las Vegas Library to discuss workforce development and job retraining opportunities available to Nevadans.

Far outpacing job growth in the years following the Great Recession, Nevada has now recovered every job lost during the pandemic thanks to private sector growth driven by economic diversification.

  • Sisolak on Monday toured the One-Stop Career Center — part of a national program called the American Job Centers — at the East Las Vegas Library to highlight the recent job numbers.
  • The job numbers showed that as of June, Nevada had 1,452,000 seasonally adjusted jobs, setting a record and coming in at about 3,000 more jobs than the state had in February 2020 right before the coronavirus pandemic cratered the state economy.
  • The governor said the career center and others in operation are “immensely valuable” to bolster Nevada’s workforce by helping match employers with people looking for a job.
