Get Involved

Employers play an important role in NMRC programming.  Your input about your workforce needs, potential job openings, and what you are looking for in job applicants helps us make sure our program participants are qualified candidates and prepared for the jobs for which they are applying. Employer involvement in our classes and workshops, doing mock interviews, providing information about your businesses, sending us information about job openings, being available for informational interviews, on site job fairs and candidate recruitment and networking events, and as potential sites for job shadowing and internships all help to make our program more effective.
