Nevada JobConnect, a statewide

network offering employment assistance

to businesses and jobseekers for

no charge, said it formed partnerships

with Home Depot, Citibank and

Health Care of America, Inc. to help

these companies recruit.

The companies’ human resource

managers will use Nevada

JobConnect’s services to help fill positions.

The Citibank and HCA partnerships

will focus on the Las Vegas

area, while Home Depot’s is a national

partnership that will help Home

Depot fill the 40,000 new jobs it will

have available over the next year in

more than 1,300 U.S. stores.

The JobConnect system is designed

with a strong local focus because most

hiring happens at the local level.
