Job search, resume assistance available in seven southeastern Idaho communities – from American Falls to the Utah border.

Idahoans living in rural southeastern Idaho have more options for obtaining services from the Idaho Department of Labor.

With a variety of office hours in seven regional mobile locations – Aberdeen, American Falls, Blackfoot, Malad, Montpelier, Preston and Soda Springs – customers can access services such as resume writing, filling out job applications, preparing for an interview, filing for unemployment benefits and learning about training resources.

These mobile sites are in addition to Labor’s full-service office in Pocatello.

All mobile locations offer walk-in hours and appointments staffed with an Idaho Department of Labor workforce consultant.

“Our mobile office model is for Idaho citizens without a Labor office in their community,” explains Department of Labor Director Jani Revier. “Our partnerships with local libraries, community centers, city halls and other organizations allow us to deliver face-to-face services to rural Idahoans. Our footprint is larger now than ever before. ”Services are also available for businesses including help with listing jobs, recruiting employees, organizing hiring events, hosting employer seminars and providing access to job training programs.

Workforce consultant Liz Perez, who is bilingual, staffs the seven mobile locations in the region.

Idahoans throughout the state can get help finding a new job, upgrading skills and increasing their earning potential in more than 50 mobile locations.

The department’s offices, mobile office locations, walk-in operating hours and contact information can be found online at
