COVID-19 Job Search Resource

Today, 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 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.

First, be sure to start with Handshake for Students, Alumni and Employers (within the state of Ohio) (jobs within the state of Ohio) (positions in Auglaize, Darke, Mercer and surrounding counties)
