Did you know that employers can post job openings with Ohio One-Stops and Pennsylvania CareerLinks^® free of charge? The Oh-Penn Career Pathways team strongly encourages manufacturers to take advantage of this service. Posting your openings is not only beneficial in helping you to identify job candidates, but it is also the best way that we can document that there are REAL JOBS available in manufacturing right now.
As some of you may know, traditional Labor Market Information doesn’t paint a positive picture about current demand and forecasts for manufacturing positions. We need to capture this information on a regular basis to show the real-time labor market needs and to inform those who may consider a career in manufacturing.
How to Post Your Jobs
If you have a job opening, please contact the Ohio One-Stop/Pennsylvania CareerLink^® in your county for assistance in posting your jobs. You will be asked specific questions, such as work schedule, shift, credentials needed/preferred and salary or wage. They will also discuss how you want candidates to apply for the position, either through a One-Stop or CareerLink^®, with the agencies screening candidates to your specifications, or directly through you.
Job postings are published on Ohio Means Jobs (https://ohiomeansjobs.com/omj/) and the Pennsylvania Career Gateway (https://www.jobgateway.state.pa.us/jponline/Admin/Common/Portal.aspx?1@8nUjueSJdCdhKBnesjAne@4Myw3Ji3jMhES62Ly7ktJJBzzLV0jntzcgNniWtK1ze_sFwQo@dA7tgcag8fYQGrADdI5LVZYEpTw7U6LPU-8n0DO1EK68rwmL96ttAGx5F25eEzDl4byX4FvkcCp@p4CjMgD2OG) .
PA CareerLinks® and Ohio One-Stops have the region’s largest pool of applicants which also draws from surrounding areas. The Career Pathways Coaches also reference the current job openings when talking to job seekers one-on-one and in Manufacturing Workshops.
