Education & Training

Through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), we can help fund eligible job seekers with educational programs or on-the-job training to prepare them for in-demand careers. WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and supportive services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.  In addition, special funding for training and education is available to dislocated workers who have lost their job through layoffs, plant closings or foreign competition.

Orientations for training are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Call 419-999-0360 to set up an appointment.

I stopped in OHIO MEANS JOBS. I wasn’t planning on doing this, due to the fact I had my kids with me. P&G and General Dynamics and so many others are hiring. Some jobs require resumes. I haven’t had to do one in so long. I talked to the associate at the desk and explained to her my goals and situation. In an hour or so I talked to two professional ladies who took me in and helped me with a resume and applications and just their spirit and encouragement (the push) to do better alone was enough. For those who are looking for jobs and need help with a resume go. I left with a smile.

You are wonderful at your jobs and I truly want you to know that I didn’t land this job alone. By means of your time, encouragement and assistance with helping me to have a better understanding of what I was going to face when I had my true interview is what gave me the confidence that made things go more smoothly! Mark this as another one of your success stories! I am truly blessed!
