In December of 2018 Columbiana County ranked 37th of 88 Ohio counties for unemployment, with 5.4 percent of residents out of work, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Navigating the process to go from unemployed to gainfully employed can be daunting and confusing for many. To help people confidently navigate these waters The Way Station is partnering with local business owners and the Lisbon Municipal Courthouse to offer a 5 week 10 session workshop starting on March 6th to help people who are either unemployed or underemployed seek and retain gainful employment.

Throughout the duration of the workshop series, Jobs: Ready, Set, Go, participants will:

  • discover their gifted path
  • learn to overcome obstacles
  • learn to write a resume and cover letter
  • practice interviewing
  • meet and talk with local business leaders
  • understand how to best present oneself in the current work world

Facilitators of this workshop take great pride in being able to offer a program that allows for flexible and personalized content to meet the groups needs focused on individual growth and success. In the past 67% of program participants were gainfully employed as a result of attending and engaging in the series.
