Continues Partnrship With Concentrix to Provide Work-At-Home Customer Service Positions
GRANTS, N.M. – SoloWorks Cibola announced that it continues to work with Concentrix to provide work-at-home customer service positions across the state of New Mexico.

"Especially in light of the public health crisis, we want to provide an opportunity to New Mexicans, particularly those in the service sector, to keep working," SoloWorks Director Shelly Fausett said.

Individuals will be asked to take part in a remote work certification program in order to be vetted and trained for remote work. The next certification starts May 4, and another begins June 1.

"We're continuing to work with Concentrix on processing applications and matching candidates to jobs. We are happy to help manage and process applications for anybody who has adequate internet and equipment and can provide a quiet environment," Fausett said.

Those who are interested in applying for the positions can do so by going to www.soloworks.org/concentrix and clicking 'Start Here' at the bottom of the page. SoloWorks will follow up with further instructions.

Eileen Yarborough, Executive Director of Cibola Communities Economic Development Foundation, which houses the SoloWorks program, said, "We believe in the value of remote work and that we can provide economic relief to New Mexicans in this crisis by connecting them to employment opportunities."

About SoloWorks Cibola

At SoloWorks, we're kickstarting New Mexico's economic recovery by helping its residents prepare for and obtain jobs that can be done remotely. The positions are all sourced from out of state, which means that every job worked in this program effectively grows the local economy by infusing it with new money – money it would have otherwise not had. For more information, visit us at www.soloworks.org.

The SoloWorks concept was innovated by Community Economics Lab (CELab), a not-for-profit think tank focused on finding new ways to do economic development and workforce development at the community level. www.thecelab.org
