On-the-Job Training

What better way to learn new skills than on the job! On-the-Job Training (OJT) is an opportunity for you to be hired by an employer who may not otherwise consider you because you lack a few skills required to be fully qualified. In On-the-Job Training, a local employer hires you and agrees to train you in specific areas needed for you to succeed.  In exchange, they receive a reimbursement of a portion of your wages to defray training costs.  It’s an ‘’earn as you learn’’ model that’s great for both the employer and the employee.  Participants who make satisfactory progress during training are retained by the employer in a permanent position.  OJT’s usually happen in one of two ways.

Self-Marketing
You may be pre-screened by staff for this program and provided with information you can use to promote yourself as an OJT candidate to potential employers. If interested, employers then contact us regarding how to get started with the process of hiring you through the On-the-Job Training Program.

Employer Outreach
Our staff is regularly reaching out to local employers informing them of the availability and advantages of the On-the-Job Training Program. Employers interested in this program refer potential OJT candidates to our office to be screened for eligibility. If eligible, we will begin moving a candidate through the steps necessary to be hired through this program.

My case manager worked closely with my employer, monitoring my progress, in making sure my new job would be a success. Thanks to all of the Career T.R.A.C.K. staff, I am now a full time employee.“ -Ed S.
