In the United States, 2018 had a rough start with unemployment rising by half a percent, but tech continues to try and mend the hurt where it can. That's why city officials of Laredo, Texas, have partnered with Workforce Solutions South Texas to create a new app for job seekers.
The new app, Jobs Near Me, with the aid of an electronic map helps pinpoint local employment vacancies.
Rogelio Trevino, executive director of workforce solutions in South Texas said, "individuals can scan the QR code and it'll generate a map of the area and it'll indicate any jobs that are available in that area."
