Permian Basin Workforce - About Us
The Mission of the Permian Basin Workforce Development Board is “investing in the future through jobs and training” here in the Permian Basin.
The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has launched MyTxCareer.com, a new online job search site designed to help Texans quickly register, search for, and apply for jobs available right now in Texas. There are currently more than 500,000 job postings available posted by more than 20,000 employers. MyTXCareer.com provides job seekers a streamlined way to register for WorkInTexas.com, the state’s online job-matching website. This new site is ideal for new users who just need to get back to work and may not need other services or programs offered by the Texas Workforce system. The sites, which are connected, offer access to the same employers and job postings. MyTxCareer.com offers a simpler registration and layout. Users who already have a WorkInTexas.com login should use that to login to MyTXCareer.com. Employers will continue to post jobs on WorkInTexas.com.
UPDATE: The federal government has extended federal unemployment benefits available under the CARES Act for an additional 11 weeks. PUA, PEUC, & FPUC will be available through March 13, 2021. To receive these extended benefits, continue to request payment and complete work search activities while unemployed. Click here for more information
