COLUMBUS, Ohio: Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Jon Husted, Director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, today announced that the seventh annual In-Demand Jobs Week will take place May 6 to May 10, the first full work week of May. In-Demand Jobs Week celebrates the many top jobs, industries, and skills across Ohio.

“Whether you are completing a certification, learning a new skill, or moving up in your career, Ohio’s broad range of in-demand jobs means Ohio is truly the heart of opportunity,” said Governor DeWine. “I encourage students and all Ohioans to attend an In-Demand Jobs Week event and explore all the options in your community.”

“For this year’s In-Demand Jobs Week, we’re focusing on the fact that here in Ohio, we make the things the world needs to live and thrive,” said Lt. Governor Husted. “From the food you eat, to the cars you drive, to the trucks that deliver it, to the airplanes that fly it, to the cloud that connects us all, to the chips that power our devices. Whether you are looking to start a new career or advance in your current one, there is opportunity here for you.”

In-Demand Jobs Week is designed to promote Ohio’s most in-demand and fastest-growing industries through statewide hiring, education, and training events. This year’s theme is “Ohio, the Heart of Opportunity,” highlighting the various opportunities available now and in the future, right here in the buckeye state. From internships to apprenticeships, and from manufacturing to healthcare jobs, there is opportunity for you in Ohio.

During the week, business, community, and education leaders are encouraged to host events to demonstrate the opportunities that are available in their community and industry. Last year, local events included job fairs, business tours, career signing days, resume workshops, and more. To register your event as an official In-Demand Jobs Week event, visit
