“The purpose of in-demand jobs week is to highlight the great careers available in Ohio and how to get the education and training you need to get started,” said Lt. Governor Jon Husted. “Businesses need talent and if you have the right kind of skills and training it can lead to a rewarding career. We want to help Ohioans, young and old, build the skills they need to earn more and support a good quality of life for themselves and their families.”
