On April 2nd, Lt. Governor Husted announced that the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation has developed a website specifically geared toward matching essential businesses with Ohioans who are able and willing to work as an essential employee during the COVID-19 crisis.
Both essential businesses and current job seekers can visit Coronavirus.Ohio.gov/JobSearch to post and search.
The site features a highly-streamlined interface with only two main links – one for essential businesses, and one for job seekers. Applicants can search through jobs in their area, their region, and the entire state.
Though many businesses and public places across Ohio and the nation have had to close during the COVID-19 crisis in order to promote social distancing and slow the spread of the virus, there are many businesses, such as grocery stores, healthcare facilities, pharmacies, delivery companies, and many other types of businesses that are essential to ensuring the health and wellbeing of Ohioans during the crisis. These companies are in high need for workers during this time.
The site is a project of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, which Lt. Governor Husted leads as its director. The Development Services Agency (Development) and the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS) both aided in the site’s creation. Coronavirus.Ohio.gov/Jobs, like the entire coronavirus webpage, sits on the InnovateOhio Platform.
