Canton, Ohio - A panel of human resource professionals and business owners will share their wisdom and experiences with job seekers at a special workshop hosted by OhioMeansJobs Stark & Tuscarawas Counties.  

The “Ask An Employer” workshop will kick off Halloween Workshop Week on Tuesday, October 30th, at the organization’s Canton office at 822 30th St. NW and New Philadelphia office at 1260 Monroe St. Job seekers will have the opportunity to learn firsthand what companies are looking for when they are hiring new employees and ask questions of the panelists.  They also will get tips on resumes, job interviews, online applications, and how to keep a job once you have been hired.

The panel discussion will run from 10 to 11:30 a.m., followed by a hiring event from noon to 1 featuring the same companies that participated on the panel. Individuals will have the opportunity to get an on-the-spot interview with these companies, and job seekers do not have to attend the workshop to attend the hiring session.  

The employers participating in Stark County are Adams Signs and Graphics, Ohio Gratings and PTC Alliance. In Tuscarawas County the panel will consist of representatives from Interim Healthcare, Kimble, Extreme Trailers and Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers.

Halloween Workshop Week will conclude with a financial literacy workshop sponsored by OhioMeansJobs Tuscarawas County, United Way of Tuscarawas County, Inc. and Dover-Phila Federal Credit Union on Thursday, November 1st, from 10 noon at the New Philadelphia office. The workshop, titled “Master Your Money- Simple Tips to Improve Cash Flow,” will offer easy and straightforward methods for reaching financial goals.
