A north central Ohio coalition has developed a highly interactive portal (Thrive-oh.org) in which a user can:
• Navigate local career pathways in healthcare and access career videos uploaded from careervoyages.gov
• Download short reports from Economic Modeling Specialists, Inc. on regional openings/wages by occupation
• Access direct links to that occupation on the Ohiomeansjobs.com search tool
• Navigate geo-coded maps showing regional educational providers by program
Career pathways from other industries will be added as they are developed. The site also features an interactive internship portal on which employers can post and students search/apply; an online database that will eventually allow employers to search geographically from their desktop through lists of students achieving any defined credential uploaded by schools; and numerous pages on regionalized support services including medical supports, veterans’ services, etc.
