Emsi SkillsMatch program to help Nevadans get back to work

GOED, OWINN use CARES funding to provide sophisticated jobs software tool

CARSON CITY, Nev. – In an effort to help Nevadans who are unemployed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and the Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation (OWINN) are using CARES Act funding to make the Emsi SkillsMatch tool available for those seeking to get back into the job market.

“The SkillsMatch software platform will help people identify which employment skills they have and perhaps more importantly, help them identify which skills they need to obtain to become more employable in today’s job market,” said Michael Brown, GOED Executive Director.

The Nevada SkillsMatch tool is free and available at nv.emsiskills.com. It is not a job board, but it can be used to connect individuals to jobs that meet their qualifications. The SkillsMatch tool helps individuals understand career and education opportunities that may be a good fit with past experience.

“Even before the pandemic, there was a major disconnect in the labor market: employers, training providers, and jobseekers were all speaking a different language,” said Isla Young, OWINN Senior Program Development & Engagement Specialist. “The result is people weren’t getting the training they needed for the jobs they wanted, and employers weren’t finding the talent they needed. With hundreds of thousands of Nevada residents now out of work, solving this disconnect is even more pressing.”

Skills provide the common language for these three groups. Emsi will use the language of skills to connect displaced workers with training or job opportunities based on their skills.

The SkillsMatch platform quickly audits a person’s experience and training and couples it with their career goals. With this information, SkillsMatch identifies their existing skills, the training needed to fill any skill gaps, and the local job opportunities to get them back on their desired career path.

To do this, Emsi is working closely with the university and community college systems, along with local workforce boards, to develop skills-based training and education. The result is alignment of the skills being taught with the skills being sought.

“Skills are the best indicator of a person’s ability to perform and excel in each role,” said Stacey Bostwick, GOED Director of Workforce Development. “They are also what employers are seeking when hiring individuals. They are thus the most efficient way to get Nevada residents back to work. People are more than the title of their last job. This partnership will harness their host of abilities and education to connect them to either the training they need or the job they want based on their skills.”

Ahhhh….living inside the pandemic…

Bye-Bye 2020!
Here are 12 things to consider as we get closer to closing the door on one of the most horrible years of our lifetime:
1. The dumbest thing I ever bought was a 2020 planner.
2. I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone. He asked me what I was wearing.
3. 2019: Stay away from negative people. 2020: Stay away from positive people.
4. The world has turned upside down. Old folks are sneaking out of the house & their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!
5. This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her dog. It was obvious she thought her dog understood her. I came into my house & told my cat. We laughed a lot.
6. Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit. Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.
7. Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep washing our hands?
8. This virus has done what no woman has been able to do. Cancel sports, shut down all bars & keep men at home!
9. I never thought the comment, “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!
10. I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.
11. I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to the Backyard. I’m getting tired of the Living Room.
12. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask & ask for money.
Here’s hoping for a Happier New Year!
Feel free to copy and paste, I did.

Here we go again – The European variant of Covid-19 has landed in the U.S.

Covid-19 Virus

While much of Europe has been double and triple hunkered down against the Corona Virus, it’s cousin virus, referred to as the UK Variant Virus has finally come ashore in the United States.  A man in Colorado tested positive for the variant strain of the virus and medical officials are trying to backtrack the man’s movements that caused him to come down with it.

Medical experts say the variant virus is no more life threatening than the original Covid-19, but it’s many times more contagious than the original Covid-19.

Here’s more on the story from The Washington Post.  Click here.

When wide spread vaccination against Covid-19 arrives in Nevada…

Testing on the fly for the Covid-19 Virus

The Nevada Division of Insurance passed an emergency regulation earlier this year to make sure there will be no out-of-pocket costs to Nevadans’ covered by health insurance for COVID-19 testing and vaccinations.

Nevadans who have individual health plans, small or large group plans as well as catastrophic plans will be covered to receive the COVID-19 vaccine without any co-payment, co-insurance or other form of cost-sharing.  Nevadans who don’t health insurance can go to Nevada Health Link or seek help through a federally qualified health center.

State and local governments will be informing communities statewide about how, where and when the vaccine will be available.  Suffice it to say if you’re not a critically important medical worker, law enforcement officer, a teacher elderly or suffer from a unique disease, getting a vaccine shot may be a few months away.  But check with Carson City’s Health Department for information as to when and who is offering the vaccine.

Carson City man charged with attempted robbery at Walmart

A Carson City man, dead-set on getting a huge discount on two car batteries, found out the hard way that you can’t easily fool the Walmart loss prevention personnel.

According to a Carson City Sheriff’s Office report Louis Carrette, 39 of Carson City, picked up a couple of car batteries from the shelf and, according to deputies, swapped each of the batteries’ price tags ($100 each) and put lower priced tags ($5 each) on the batteries using a phony bar code.  From there deputies learned that Carrette got through the “check-yourself-out-line” and headed for the exits.
