Earning the OhioMeansJobs-Readiness Seal
The 21st century workplace constantly is evolving. To ensure success in their careers, students must be prepared to engage in this rapidly changing environment. Ohio businesses are seeking talented workers who have solid academic skills such as reading, writing and mathematics, as well as the professional skills required for success in the workplace. Among these professional skills are being reliable, drug free, disciplined and able to solve problems.
Ohio’s education system must support students in acquiring the professional skills that Ohioans need to be job-ready. When schools prepare students for the 21st century workplace, they also build the talented workforce that Ohio businesses need.
The OhioMeansJobs-Readiness Seal is a formal designation a student can earn by demonstrating the professional skills that are required for success in the workplace. The student can earn the OhioMeansJobsReadiness Seal by asking three or more mentors to validate that the student demonstrated the professional skills valued by Ohio businesses. The OhioMeansJobs-Readiness Seal distinguishes students who are prepared to contribute to the workplace and their communities.
