Key Workforce Priorities
- Provide consistent high quality services and accountability through a system that is responsive to business, job seekers and workers.
- Provide New Mexicans with access to life long education, training and relevant workforce services
- Establish business as the primary driver of the New Mexico workforce system to ensure employment needs are met through consistent and timely quality services.
- New Mexico was the sixteenth fastest growing state in the country between 2000-2008; population 1.984 million based on 2008 Census estimates
- New Mexico has a high proportion (10.9%) of residents with a graduate or professional degree due in part to the national labs, technical universities and high-tech industry
- The majority of jobs in New Mexico are either in the service providing industries or the government sector. The proportion of government jobs is higher primarily because of the presence of two national defense laboratories and three large Air Force bases.
