CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - While businesses and employees have all suffered during 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic, the unemployment rate across the state has been dropping month after month, according to the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.

DWS and its workforce centers across the state have still been busy, according to Ty Stockton, DWS communications manager. “It’s hard to see that because you know it’s only busy because there are a lot of people who need help, and we’re trying to do our best to help those folks as quickly as we can,” said Stockton.

He maintains that it is important for people to keep their work skills sharp, and prominently placing skills on their resume can help them land a new job.

“Hiring managers can look at that and make a quick decision, “Hey! You are the person we want for the job,’” said Stockton. “You’re more likely to get an in interview, and it also helps you because it keeps those skills that are important to you on the top of your mind.”

DWS Workforce Centers can help with resumes and determine skills to prominently display. They can also help find information that is helpful for your job search and other resources to keep skills sharp.
