Skills Enhancement & Career Tools


Work In Texas Logo

Thank you for your interest in the Texas Workforce Commission’s (TWC) Skills Enhancement initiative. We are excited for you to take advantage of this great opportunity!

Our goal is to help you get back to work as quickly as possible by providing tools to explore your interests, access to high value skills training, and referrals to quality jobs with Texas employers.

The first step to take part in this initiative is to update your WorkInTexas.com account.  WorkInTexas.com is a powerful online job matching and workforce services system.

Individuals seeking a new job, different job, or an additional job can post their résumé, search job listings (including Texas state agency jobs), apply for jobs, get information about the job market, and receive a variety of other services through WorkInTexas.com.

If you need help accessing WorkInTexas.com or updating your account, contact your local Workforce Solutions office.  To find the local workforce office nearest you, visit our Workforce Solutions Directory.

We encourage you to start thinking about the skills you would like to enhance for your next career move. If you are unsure what that might be, TWC offers several resources to help:
