If you're on the fringes of the labor force and are looking for a job, Texas Workforce Solutions may be able to help. The state agency coordinates with a wide network of potential employers and, if necessary, can connect job seekers with adult education classes and vocational training programs. Unsure of how to write a resume or prepare for an interview? TWS can probably help.
Stop by. Give them a call. Just make sure that, however you decide to get in touch, do not -- we repeat, DO NOT -- include a picture of your penis.
TWS is not the proper launching point for your porn career; its bureaucrats aren't paid nearly enough to stare at your junk. And if the caseworker is anything like the 25-year-old worker at TWS' Alpha Road office who found a client's dick pic waiting in her email this morning alongside his job application, she will promptly call police, who will know from the personal email address who sent it and thus gets a ticket for "obscene display or distribution." That's a class C misdemeanor.
Before jumping to a conclusion about the Alpha Road case, it's worth considering the possibility that the email was an accident, misdirected from the intended recipient to the TWS worker. Anyone who's ever hit "reply all" or experienced an autocomplete fail can sympathize with that.
Either way, Dallas police spokesman Demarquis Black says that, from what he can tell from the police report, the emailer in the Alpha Road case remains unemployed.
"I think I know why he can't find a job," Black says.
