In The Region:

Ohio has a new tool to help the thousands of people who are looking for jobs, and the employers who need to hire workers. Gov. John Kasich says the Ohio Means Jobs website is a one-stop shop for new graduates, veterans and others who can now search through more than 150,000 jobs.

“There’s just a lot of opportunities on this site, to dig deeper into particular professions, to be able to set a schedule to be able to understand what the salary is, to understand the availability of the jobs.”

Kasich says OhioMeansJobs.com will also match employers with those seeking work, and will show workers the jobs that are most in demand. The site features a tool that grades resumes, assessments to help people find the best jobs for their skill sets, and a calculator that shows what the annual income in a particular job will buy. People filing for unemployment benefits must register on OhioMeansJobs.com, and the site will automatically generate resumes for jobseekers who haven’t created them.
