“Employers are always looking for qualified employees,” said Mary Ann Kochalko, chief operating officer of Mahoning and Columbiana County’s One Stop. “A lot of them don’t have the H.R. department to do the work themselves, so they rely on us to help them with their recruitment.”

Ohio Means Jobs helps match companies with job seekers, giving them an opportunity for a dream job. But it also can do the match-making much easier.

“Of course we can post jobs on Ohio Means Jobs, but in addition to that we can offer them facilities if they want to come here and conduct their interviewing,” Kochalko said.
