State offering mobile-friendly job hunting

 
AUSTIN - The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has partnered with Texas.gov to develop a mobile-friendly version of WorkInTexas.com, TWC’s online job-matching resource. Job seekers can now access the most frequently used features of WorkInTexas.com from a mobile phone or tablet and enjoy the same satisfying experience as they would when accessing it from a desktop computer.
 
This project marks the first time Texas.gov has worked with a government agency to make its website mobile-friendly. Instead of developing a separate mobile application, which would have been expensive and required a longer development process, Texas.gov and TWC chose a responsive design solution. Using responsive design patterns, WorkInTexas.com is functional on all desktop, mobile, and most tablet platforms. When a user visits WorkInTexas.com, the screen resolution is detected automatically and the correct page layout is presented. 
 
Before the new site was launched, many mobile device users had difficulty navigating and interacting with WorkInTexas.com. Now, the application provides a much-needed simple and secure mobile option for job seekers. “Responsive design is a very desirable and reliable technology for creating mobile-friendly websites,” said Erin Hutchins, Director of Portal Operations at Texas.gov “Texas.gov is at the forefront of mobile technology for government, and we are pleased to partner with TWC to deliver this solution to thousands of Texans.”
 
In addition to benefitting users, the new WorkInTexas.com site will also be much easier for TWC to maintain. Any changes that the agency makes to the desktop version will automatically appear in the mobile view as well. There is no need for TWC to maintain separate code bases, which enables the agency to reap the benefits from this efficient, cost-effective responsive design solution.
