Ohio Launches “Career Navigator” to Empower Residents on Their Career Journeys


Columbus, Ohio (March 5, 2024) – In a move aimed at simplifying career exploration and advancement for Ohioans, Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted today announced the launch of the “Ohio Career Navigator.” This innovative tool, available on OhioMeansJobs.com, serves as a one-stop-shop for residents seeking resources to acquire in-demand skills, pursue further education, and ultimately achieve their desired career goals.

“Ohio boasts a wealth of resources for individuals navigating their career or educational paths, but it can be overwhelming to find what you need without knowing where to begin,” acknowledged Lt. Governor Husted. “The Career Navigator streamlines this process by offering personalized information and centralizing resources, empowering users to chart the best course for their future.”

The platform’s user-friendly interface starts with an easy-to-use survey that tailors content and services to individual needs. This unique approach connects users with comprehensive and up-to-date information from both state agencies and external sources, ultimately enabling them to make informed decisions for a thriving career in Ohio. The tool will continuously evolve based on feedback from users and state agencies, ensuring its continued effectiveness.

“Ohio’s diverse economy offers a multitude of career opportunities to suit various skills and interests,” said Matt Damschroder, Director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. “The Career Navigator joins a vast array of resources readily available at local OhioMeansJobs Centers and the OhioMeansJobs.com website.”

Through OhioMeansJobs.com and local centers, individuals can access a comprehensive suite of services, including job search assistance, skill and career assessments, resume creation and improvement, interview practice, and much more. Additionally, the Career Navigator and other tools provide valuable insights into in-demand careers and connect users with local training programs and scholarships.
