This week, May 6 through May 10, Ohio is celebrating In-Demand Jobs Week! In-Demand Jobs Week is a statewide celebration of jobs, industries and skills that are in-demand in Ohio. In-demand jobs are jobs that have a sustainable wage and a promising future based on the projected number of openings and growth. Ohio has in-demand jobs in more than 200 occupations across a wide range of industries. Community leaders statewide have been encouraged to partner and plan engaging events and activities that will inspire excitement and awareness among students and jobs seekers. There are more than 340 community-led events hosted by business and education leaders throughout the state. From job fairs to business tours and hands-on experiences, the week provides businesses with an opportunity to open their doors to students and job seekers to increase interest in local jobs and build a talent pipeline.
