Last month, I wrote about OhioMeansJobs.com, a website aimed at helping Ohioans looking for work to find jobs, as well as help businesses find qualified workers to fill open positions. Also last month, JobsOhio released a report that indicated the state’s private, non-profit economic development organization is making great progress in the areas of job creation and investment.
Rather than finding ways to punish prosperity, public servants should work with area business owners to find ways to promote job creation. That is exactly what JobsOhio has done since its creation early last year.
Finally, I would like to make you aware of an opportunity that helps area residents prepare for job-searching and future career development. The Geauga County Job & Family Services, along with Auburn Career Center ABLE, offers free adult education classes in math, writing, reading and GED preparation. The classes are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 1:30 PM to 4 PM at the Family Services Building (12480 Ravenwood Drive, Chardon, OH 44024). If you are interested in taking some classes, I strongly encourage you to check it out. To register, please call 440-285-1116.
