The Mesa County Workforce Center in Grand Junction marked a milestone with the nine-year anniversary of the construction of a new building housing the center.

The building opened in February of 2014 at 512 29 1/2 Road. At nearly 32,000 square feet, the building brought under one roof staff that previously worked in six buildings along North Avenue.

Lindsay Bullock, director of the center, said the building has provided room to grow programs and services offered to employers and job seekers.

“To know where we came from allows us to truly appreciate how far we have come,” Bullock said. “This building is more than a location. It’s full of people who are dedicated to doing the most good for our community through its vital programs. I am proud of the work we do at the workforce center, and I am excited to continue supporting our community.”

The Mesa County Workforce Center offers a one-stop shop of sorts for businesses and job seekers, including assistance with hiring events, screening applicants and on-the-job training as well as job searches, resumes and interviewing. The center helped Mesa County receive designation as the first Work Ready Community in Colorado under a program connecting businesses looking for employees and applicants looking for jobs.
