in Summit County in 2020
This program has enabled our start‐up company to employ individuals who did not have the skill set to be immediately effective in their roles and spend more time intensively training them with the skills needed to be successful long‐term. The support from OhioMeansJobs Summit County’s On-the-Job Training Program to offset the cost of that training, and the support of the staff through the application process, really helped!

The CCMEP team has truly been a superior support system in my life. As a first-generation high school graduate, the program introduced me to things I never would have experienced. From teaching work ethic, to practicing accountability, there was never a time, meeting, or lesson I encountered that has not helped me in the long run, even after leaving the program. Not only does the program expose you to real life situations, the mentor/family aspect of things is a bond that will be appreciated for years to come.
The BOSS teachers are amazing. I really enjoyed learning new things and being able to ask questions about them. The assignments on careers and the different quizzes really helped me get to know my inner-self better.
With OMJ Summit County guidance, we revised my resume, discussed opportunities, and I attended workshops, including The Executive Network Group. After six grueling months, I landed a new position! Thanks to the Talent Developer for your support and perseverance. OhioMeans...JOBS well done.
CCMEP is really helping me think about new possibilities.
I have an awesome career coordinator that has been really helpful with following up and providing support to me in a timely manner. My career coordinator assisted me with a mock interview that was really helpful. OhioMeansJobs Summit County has a really great program and always has someone available to provide assistance and encouragement as well!
Arlington Valley Farms has partnered with OhioMeansJobs Summit County’s Business Services team to secure On-the-Job-Training plans for Machine Operator employees. We have found the staff at OMJSC to be timely and professional in explaining the OJT program, creating the contracts, orienting the new hires on expectations regarding the program and following up with management and new hires after training has begun. Arlington Valley Farms appreciates the opportunity and plans to continue this partnership.

The key element of the On-the-Job Training Program is the training of a new employee with minimal experience in new job skills to fill an open position. The program allowed us to train our new employee to grow into the role while meeting our company specific needs and utilizing our specific software systems while working and earning the benefits of a full time employee. We plan to continue growing our business with the aid of OhioMeansJobs Summit County and their programs.

I would encourage everyone to attend the employment workshop. I had been out of the job searching scene for over 28 years, and there was so much to learn. Because of the tools and information given during the workshop, I learned how to write a resume and conduct an interview that landed me a great job.
Last year when I was furloughed and then laid off due to COVID, I wasn't sure where to even begin looking for a new job. I was recommended to work with OMJ for a position that fit well with my skills and was for people in my situation. I'm grateful for all that OMJ has been able to do to help my family and I keep some peace of mind.
