These days, just about everybody has access to the Internet. Many people use the Internet to help them in their job search efforts. There is a website that aims to help link Ohioans to job openings. has existed for a few years, but I think now is an especially good time to tout its benefits because our state is once again becoming economically competitive.

Ohio has climbed to near the top of the list nationwide for its job-creating capacity, including number one in the Midwest. With companies and jobs coming back to Ohio, it is important that all job-seekers, as well as employers, know about this important resource.

The term “Ohio Means Jobs” holds a lot of symbolism for what we have been trying to accomplish during this General Assembly. Our goal from the beginning in loosening regulations and lowering taxes was to show businesses that Ohio is once again a great place for entrepreneurs to locate and expand their operations. From an economic sense, we want “Ohio” to be synonymous with “jobs.”

This website makes searching for jobs easier for workers, while also simplifying the process for businesses to find high-quality candidates to fill open positions. It is also available as an app on iPhones, iPads and Android devices. Young people who are looking for internship opportunities can also benefit from its sister site, This website provides great opportunities for high-school and college-aged students, as well as anyone who is looking for quality work experience.

I encourage you to check out the website. Whether you are looking to hire or be hired, OhioMeansJobs is a fantastic resource that will make a considerable impact in maintaining the economic momentum our state has gained over the past several months.
