VAN WERT — How should a small business go about finding quality recruits to hire? The Van Wert County Economic Development Advisory Group and Economic Development Director Cindy Leis is hosting a free workshop to help. The workshop will be from 9-10 a.m. Aug. 16 in the Community Room at Vantage Career Center.
The workshop will be presented by Laura Kohlhorst-Jones, a Workforce Specialist at the Ohio Department of Job & Family Services. In addition, a tour of Vantage Career Center’s new Trade & Industry wing will follow the workshop for any interested attendees.
The session is scheduled to begin directly after the meeting of the Van Wert County Economic Development Group meeting that morning.
This workshop can assist a company in addressing its hiring needs. Among other things, one major benefit will be learning how to access over 2.5 million resumes on OhioMeansJobs.com and how to post job openings on the website. OhioMeansJobs.com is a place for employers to look for Ohio-based talent, to post job opportunities and to integrate employment events into a single, cost free point of contact.
