Today, I was happy to be a part of a panel that addressed the staff who assist job seekers and employers at Ohio's 89 Ohio Means Jobs Centers. These staff members interact daily with job seekers from various walks of life; from professional degreed individuals, blue-collared manufacturing individuals, first-time job seekers and all those in-between. The program was set-up to help improve the assistance provided to those job seekers by hearing from a panel of those who are currently hiring. Some of the questions we addressed: What are the things you look for on a resume? Are there top do’s or don’ts that you recommend for resumes? Best practices for interviews? One thing all candidates need to do to impress the hiring manager? These types of answers were of benefit to their staff members to prepare job seekers for their next opportunity.
Thanks to the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services!
