Ready for new careers, new industries and new opportunities

Tracey Bryan

Getting back to “normal” for our community post-COVID means there’s likely a “new normal” for many who are thinking about their careers in a new way, along with businesses seeking to bring on workers in a new way.

For those job seekers and businesses, there’s a new initiative called Ready New Mexico ( that can point the way for those ready to get back to work or ready to learn new skills to take on new careers, as well as hiring incentives and hiring assistance for businesses ready to rebuild their workforce.

Ready New Mexico unites the New Mexico Higher Education Department, the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions, and the New Mexico Workforce Connection system to provide easy, consolidated access for both individuals and businesses across New Mexico to the training, education, and employment resources they need as our economy recovers.
