TEXAS – The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has launched a new mobile app to help Texans explore potential careers and discover resources to achieve their goals.
With the launch of the MyTXCareer app, job seekers can now find customized occupations and recommended career paths based on their skills, interests and experience.
“The continued growth of Texas’ record-setting economy creates opportunities for Texans to advance their careers,” said Bryan Daniel, TWC President. “The MyTXCareer app will be an important tool for Texans to discover potential career paths and match a job opportunity with a Texas employer.”
TWC reported that the app is a free resource designed to guide users to potential careers through three easy steps: search occupations, explore pathways and get support. By browsing occupations, users can view the median wage for the position, job demand, and position descriptions.
“The app will help Texans discover potential opportunities and career pathways in high-demand industries,” said Alberto Treviño III, TWC Labor Commissioner.
Users can take a career personality quiz, and add their career goals, education, work experience and skills. The application offers several possible career paths and information on resources and training. Users can request more information, which will connect them with their local Workforce Solutions office and TWC’s TX Credential Connect team.
“The launch of the MyTXCareer app is great news for Texas employers because it helps them hire people who are passionate about what they do in the best state in the nation,” said Joe Esparza, TWC Employer Representative Commissioner.
MyTXCareer is available for download on the App Store and Google Play for iOS and Android cell phones. The app is provided free to users and does not include advertising or in-app purchases.
