On the Job Training (OJT) for Jobseekers
An OJT position is a win—win for the employer and the jobseeker or student.
The Workforce Center staff and customer seeking an OJT experience will be deemed appropriate for these
services based on the customer individual service strategy. The customer will be screened against the
employer requirements for the OJT to see if there is a good match. The customer resume will be submitted
to the Employer for a decision. The Workforce Center staff will ensure that both the customer and the
employer have reviewed the contract outlining the curriculum, the length of the OJT and the hourly wage
match. There will be a review of the employer's needs and the related training needs of the customer.
The OJT contract will then be executed for the customer selected by the employer for hiring. The
Workforce Center will set up with the employer the method of submitting signed invoices for reimbursement
to the company for the employee's time supported by time records and paycheck stub at specified
intervals. The Workforce Center's fiscal agent will receive all the documentation needed to send the
payments for the agreed upon wages. The Workforce Center staff is responsible to track the customer file
for each payment made to the employer to monitor that against total contracted amount to ensure no
overpayment. The customer, through an OJT experience, will gain several benefits to this work
- Valuable training at no cost to the employee

a specific career field
- Selected by the employer due to the OJT arrangement with the
