Support for Businesses

OhioMeansJobs is concerned about your business, your employees, your bottom line, and your success.

Our goal is to help you find the right employees easily and quickly by developing a personalized virtual recruitment strategy to help you reduce both time and money spent during the hiring process. To have a greater impact on placement, retention, and wages, we focus on a demand-driven, employer-sensitive system. Staff with recruitment and sales backgrounds proactively contact local businesses, large and small, to identify open and active job placement and training opportunities. As workforce needs are identified and job orders produced, employers receive referrals of prospective employees from a database of over 40,000 resumes that have already been screened to ensure that those job skills seen as important by the employer are present.
