The new OhioMeansJobs mobile phone application allows Ohioans to search, save and apply for jobs from their iPhone, iPad or Android device. The app combines unique data from the state of Ohio with advanced search tools and filter technology from Monster. Job seekers can use the app to view their resumes and search tens of thousands of job openings by job title, keyword and location.
"The OhioMeansJobs mobile app makes finding your next job faster and easier," said Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Director Michael Colbert. "The app and website combine to provide the information, tips, specialized search tools and targeted exposure that sets a job seeker apart from the pack."
Developed through a partnership with Monster, the mobile app also aggregates internship openings posted on nearly any website in Ohio.
"At the Board of Regents, we are focused on helping students complete their education and find a career," Chancellor Jim Petro said. "Mobile devices such as iPhones are the type of technology these students are using. By using the mobile phone app to inform students about jobs and internships, we are reaching out to them in a way they are comfortable communicating."
The OhioMeansJobs website also offers specialized job search assistance for Ohio’s veterans and always lists veterans’ resumes first when employers are searching for candidates.
In addition to serving job seekers, OhioMeansJobs is a valuable tool for business owners and hiring managers. The website gives Ohio-based employers free access to the Monster resume bank, a savings of more than $10,000 annually, and provides information on how a business owner’s next hire could earn him or her an $8,000 On-the-Job Training grant.
