How do I participate in work search activities?

  • A work search is a good faith effort to find work and claimants are expected to use reasonable methods and conduct work search activities normal to their occupation. DETR has a number of programs and partners to help claimants with this process that includes training for a new high demand career, adult education and literacy programs, virtual support at Nevada JobConnect and in person support through Nevadaworks in Northern Nevada, and Workforce Connections in Southern Nevada
