Here'S what local businesses are saying about CSA

Working with the CSA team has been nothing short of exceptional - even recommending us for considerations of people to employ and better our company. CSA provides a key service to our community that enables business owners to explore different opportunities which makes the Entrepreneurship spirit alive and kicking in Northern Nevada.

Owner, Moondog Computer

The workforce development program that Community Services Agency has created was crucial to the success of our own internal workforce. The agency was able to refer to us several qualified candidates that far exceed our expectations. Hiring individuals that were job ready and willing to learn how hands-on-skills improved the likeliness that they will maintain employment.

CSA's workforce development program is the glue between qualified employees and satisfied employers. The ability for CSA to not only prepare job seekers for employment, but to be able to fund trainings for students has proved to be an indispensable service in producing a stronger workforce.

Assistant Director - Professional Development & Certificate Programs, UNR Extended Studies

With their help, we were able to hire and train an intern to learn our business, develop industry skills, and she has since become our valued employee. The time that (we) saved searching for qualified candidates, and the money we saved by having training covered by CSA’s employer incentives programs, were instrumental to our early success.
