Public libraries have been active supporters of workforce development in their communities - from offering free computer and internet access, training on digital skills and resume writing, online learning, and small business resources, and more recently career exploration through STEM programming and maker-spaces. With this in mind, the State Library and Workforce Connections have teamed up to implement the Nevada Career Explorer powered by Headed2! The Career Explorer is a place to find not just a job, but a career you’ll love. Explore over 900 careers, countless educational and certification opportunities, or learn more about yourself and the careers made for you by taking a self-assessment. All you need is a free library card!
