Solutions for Workers
Businesses in our region need employees who are hardworking, dedicated and ready to jump in wherever they are needed. They need to hire people with current skills and, more importantly, the ability to learn new skills. Earning a National Career Readiness Certificate goes a long way toward proving to employers that you have what they need but, alone, it’s not enough.
Today’s job market requires that applicants have the necessary tools for a successful job search along with a strong understanding of what employers expect once hired. Through OhioMeansJobs Lucas County, we can help with resumes and cover letters, prepare job seekers for interviews, and raise their awareness of employer expectations. Through a series of free workshops, individuals can improve their chances of being hired by businesses who will provide the start of a long-term career.
In addition to workshops and seminars, OhioMeansJobs Lucas County provides access to computers connected to high speed internet, high-quality laser printers, copy machines, fax machines and telephones to be used in pursuing that next career opportunity. Businesses looking for workers are frequently on-site holding either scheduled or open interviews, being featured as a Business of the Day or participating in “Get-A-Job Friday” hiring events. From manufacturing to computer technology to healthcare and more, companies regularly come to us when they need to find highly qualified workers.
