With 8.6 million Americans unemployed, finding work is still a challenge. In fact, last year, President Obama said America needs a better “job training system” to help people learn the right skills, in order to fill the jobs employers need. To help, Glassdoor, a jobs and recruiting marketplace, has unveiled On-the-Job Training Finder, a new interactive job search mapping tool, allowing people to find on-the-job training (OJT) career opportunities, such as apprenticeships and trainee positions. These OJT opportunities allow people to learn new skills, or start an entirely new career, while getting paid. SearchJobs Search for Jobs Offering On-the-Job Training To start finding new opportunities, all job seekers have to do is visit the interactive map, search by specific city, and they’ll instantly see how many OJT opportunities are currently available in each city. This makes it easier to search for trainee positions near home or within a reasonable driving distance. Upon clicking a specific city, job seekers will see current OJT openings for that city, including the company hiring for each OJT role with details on requirements and how to apply. For instance, if you’re interested in on-the-job training jobs in Chicago, you can zoom into the region on the map and see that there are currently 305 open positions: OntheJobTrainingChicago By using this new tool, job seekers will easily be able to simultaneously search apprenticeships, including many of those registered through the Department of Labor, in addition to non-registered apprenticeships and trainee positions, across a variety of industries. In the image below, you can get a sense of job search results you’ll see once you click on a particular city within the map: OntheJobTrainingSeattle Right now, there are nearly 70,000 on-the-job training positions* being advertised by employers in all 50 states, ranging in experience requirements from no college to some college or work experience to a college degree.
