The Kentucky Career Center JobSight network provides employers with valuable resources to recruit qualified employees from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets. These services include local and state initiatives to aid in recruitment, employer training programs, funding for training/assessments, and business retention/expansion efforts.
Financial Assistance for On-the-job Training (OJT)
We will reward you for hiring new employees! We also help employees that need hands-on training to begin a successful career with your company.
The benefits of the OJT program include:
- Matching laid-off workers and unemployed adults with full-time job openings while providing financial assistance to employers
- We cover between 50%-75% of the trainee’s wages
Our centers can assist businesses with all details of the interviewing and hiring process. We can also help recruit workers from untapped populations, such as the under-employed, out-of-school youth, welfare recipients, veterans, and persons with disabilities.
Through specialized computer programs, our centers have resources to assess job seekers and their skills in order to find a match for an employer’s specific needs.
Our centers provide funding for customized training at your workplace. Employers can access opportunities such as the Kentucky Workforce Investment Network System (KY WINS) through theKentucky Community & Technical College System, among others, to gain skilled employees and additional funds for many training needs.
