Coshocton County Opportunity Links is the “One Stop” Jobs Service Center located at 725 Pine Street in the lower level of Coshocton County Job & Family Services.
The “One Stop” provides services to local businesses and employed and unemployed job seekers. Coshocton Opportunity Links works with county agencies to deliver a variety of employment and training services to meet the needs of our customers whether that customer is a leading industrial entity, a small family establishment or a recent graduate looking for a first job.
Job seekers can expect a wide array of services available to them as they search for that first job or look to improve their employment status. Job seekers have the opportunity for “One Stop” core services such as resume’ development, interview skills training, skills and aptitude testing, career counseling, job coaching and complete Job readiness development through a week long intensive “Job Club” or workshops developed based on the needs of the client.
Job seekers have available to them all the tools necessary to effectively prepare and apply for job opportunities.
