Clovis Economic Development (CIDC) – in partnership with Elite Business Performance LLC, the Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce, the City of Clovis and Plateau – are proud to announce the official launch of Clovis Remote, a free program designed to connect the local community with remote job opportunities. The program is available at no cost to anyone living within 25 miles of Clovis, including military spouses at Cannon Air Force Base (AFB) and local veterans.
Clovis Remote participants will receive training on how to start a remote working career, as well as a variety of support including resume and interview preparation, virtual job placement assistance and coworking opportunities. Anyone without remote work experience is required to complete a New Remote Worker Training with self-paced or instructor-led options. The first virtual instructor-led training session kicks off on Sept. 13.
Having a great internet connection and professional skills that are in high demand for remote workers can give jobseekers a competitive edge over others who are pursuing jobs that can be done anywhere. Fortunately, Clovis is a gigabit city with affordable fiber internet throughout most of the community. That solid infrastructure combined with the Clovis Remote program can open doors to opportunities across the globe for local jobseekers striving to work from home or away from a traditional office location.
“The increasing demand for remote workers nationwide has created an extremely competitive industry,” said Chase Gentry, Clovis Economic Development Director. “Clovis Remote is designed to equip local candidates with the confidence they need to succeed, and putting Clovis on the map as an option for reliable remote candidates will stimulate the local economy.”
Clovis Remote was developed in support of the Clovis TruGig Initiative, one of CIDC’s top priorities. CIDC is committed to developing this affordable, economic development program in effort to boost the remote workforce in Clovis.
“I’m very grateful for this program,” said Miesje Scott-Evans, a Cannon AFB spouse who received a remote job offer after completing the Clovis Remote program. “Andrea took the time to work with me and the other participants, helping us find what we really wanted and what we really needed. I truly believe in the program. I have seen what people can gain from it and know it will make a huge impact on Clovis and the community.”
Clovis Remote is sponsored by the Clovis Economic Development, the Clovis Curry County Chamber of Commerce, the City of Clovis, and Plateau Telecommunications. To register, please visit clovisnm.org/remote. For more information about the program, email email@example.com.
