Workforce

San Juan County, New Mexico has a long history in the energy industry including extraction of oil, gas, and coal and our workforce has adapted to reflect that. Four Corners Economic Development is currently involved in the Skill Ready Four Corners project which is being used to assess our current workforce and help employers and job seekers by offering a free skills-based hiring tool. Skill Ready Four Corners promotes the use of the ACT, Inc. WorkKeys® assessments and we are the first community in New Mexico to gain the ACT Certified Work Ready Communities designation. Employers can also list job postings on www.SkillReadyFourCorners.com for a nominal fee. Some postings may qualify for a free listing.
