The Community Action Organization (CAO) of Scioto County, Inc. job seekers at the Ohio Job Center on May 3 for a special workshop in appreciation of Jobs On Demand Week.

In-Demand Jobs Week is a statewide celebration of in-demand jobs, industries, and skills in Ohio. This year, In-Demand Jobs Week will highlight the best jobs in Ohio that stem from vocational education at the tech hub, and the different paths Ohioans can take to have a successful career.

To support job seekers in the region, CAO employees will be available to share information about jobs requested from local companies. Job seekers are welcome to use the Career Center to update resumes and apply for available jobs online. Information will also be available for all services provided by the Business and Workforce Development Program.

In addition to applying for open positions, the Jobs In Demand event will highlight the many opportunities available through the Ohio Men’s Jobs Scioto County Career Center.

Open house features will include a tour of the Ohio Men’s Jobs One Stop Center, a resume writing workshop, job search assistance, and more. The organization will also have local employers on site. Light refreshments will be served.

“Job seekers are a critical component of business in our region, and it is important for job seekers to be job ready by learning job readiness skills to be competitive in the job market. Workers are warmly invited to attend our next event where they can learn job search skills as well as resume writing skill.

Job seekers are encouraged to attend this event to learn more about the opportunities and services available in Scioto and surrounding counties.

“Most people in the community don’t fully understand all of the many resources Community Action provides,” said Joseph Pratt, Director of Business and Community Development. “While this is only one chapter in one section of the worthwhile services we offer, it is an important chapter and I believe we have excellent staff, especially Mr. Richardson, to guide job seekers in their search for gainful employment. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn and grow your career through our services. I encourage anyone looking, or even considering research, to come and learn from our staff!”

Community Action will also be showcasing its new virtual reality equipment with trainer Heather Bock. The equipment is ideal for job demonstrations, hands-on training, and a look at what those functional areas entail.
