New Services Offered to Veterans on OhioMeansJobs.com
Written by WKTN Staff on November 11, 2022
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services announced two new services for veterans and military spouses on: OhioMeansJobs.com
Veterans registered on the website are now prompted to complete a brief questionnaire asking if they would like to receive one-on-one help with their job searches.
In addition, the resumes of military spouses are now designated with a red and blue “S” to make them stand out to military-friendly employers – much like veterans’ resumes that are flagged with a “V.”
Veterans who indicate they would like one-on-one assistance with their job searches are contacted by an employment specialist at their local Ohio Means Jobs Center, which are in every county.
Veterans and their spouses can visit the centers for help writing their resumes, practicing interviewing, and applying for jobs in their area.
They also can attend employment workshops, get career coaching, and get referrals to local training program service providers.
All veterans in Ohio are given priority of service in referrals to job openings and other services.
