No matter whether you are a student, a veteran, or simply looking for new career ideas, Ohio has a great resource to help everyone with their next move. Ohio’s employment and resource website, OhioMeansJobs.com, is a one-stop shop to connect Ohioans with resources, tools and employers. This website is available to any Ohioan, for free, to upload resumes, create a profile, or simply search for jobs in the area.

For Ohio's students, OhioMeansJobs.com is a career exploration resource. The website provides tools to help match students to career-readiness opportunities. There are links available to help students choose which classes to take in preparation for their desired profession. Other resources connect students with compatible career options, technical training opportunities, or college and university options and even provide suggestions on how to budget for and finance their higher or technical education. In Ohio, over 70,000 students in elementary, middle and high schools have already visited the website to explore career aspirations and opportunities, see which jobs are available near them in a career they are interested in, as well as provide educational requirements and career planning tips.

For veterans, OhioMeansJobs.com created a one-stop portal to offer benefits designed for those in the military and their families. In Ohio, your service may be worth more than you think. Specific training and experiences give veterans an edge in many career options, or may be counted as prerequisites for those who want to further their education. The website provides a variety of tools including a military skills translator for Ohio, career resources and benefits, military occupation searches and how to use skills for college credit. 

All Ohioans have free access to the OhioMeansJobs.com website to explore in-demand careers, employment programs, and even calculate a budget. Just visit the website and click on the “Individual” button to open up the world of possibilities. Potential employees can work on a career profile or upload their resume for employers to see. OhioMeansJobs.com is also hosting a free career fair at Sinclair Community College on June 26 from 1 to 6 p.m. in downtown Dayton. 

If you are interested in learning more about potential employment opportunities, thinking about a career change, or planning for your future, I encourage you to go to OhioMeansJobs.com and explore options. A new career and better future may be just a few clicks away.
