Today, children need to see a link between what they are learning and future work. Career Connections offer practical ways for teachers and school counselors, families and community members to show students, as early as in kindergarten, the types of careers possible for them.
Business Advisory Councils
All Ohio school districts and Educational Service Centers need to have a Business Advisory Council. Business advisory councils foster cooperation among schools, businesses and the communities they serve. This cooperation can make a local education system more aware of the local labor market; promote workbased experiences within businesses; and help students prepare for successful learning and employment opportunities.
The OhioMeansJobs-Readiness Seal
Ohio high school students can earn recognition by showing they are prepared to contribute to their communities. The OhioMeansJobs-Readiness Seal is a formal designation students can earn on their high school diplomas and transcripts indicating they have the personal strengths, strong work ethic and professional experience that businesses need.
