In-Demand Jobs Week is an Ohio celebration of jobs, industries and skills that are in demand in our state. Ohio urges all its communities to partner with their local industries and community organizations to plan events and activities that will inspire excitement among students and job seekers. In-Demand Jobs Week is celebrated annually the first week of May.
FOR STUDENTS AND JOB SEEKERS
In-Demand Jobs Week gives students and job seekers a great chance to learn more about rewarding local careers — careers for which employers are right now recruiting.
In-Demand Jobs Week is your chance to inspire your students about their futures by using the classroom and employer-based activities to focus on well-paying, in-demand careers and pathways.
Start talking with students about their personal interests in the classroom, and guide them through activities that can help them pinpoint what they love doing. Having students explore their own strengths and talents can help blend career awareness, career exploration and career preparation activities in each child’s life. These activities can help students find out what they are good at and define the values that will guide their careers. That’s effective career advising!
In 2018, the first full week of May was designated as In-Demand Jobs Week. Each year, businesses, education providers, community organizations, and more are encouraged to plan unique opportunities throughout the week. This year, events will inspire students and job seekers to earn a credential and pursue a job in Ohio. From tours and roundtables to career-tech signing days and job fairs, In-Demand Jobs Week is an opportunity to highlight what Ohio has to offer.
Organizations can visit TopJobs.Ohio.gov to add their event to the official In-Demand Jobs Week map. Individuals interested in attending an event can use the 2022 event map to find opportunities nearby.
