On-the-Job Training

It can be difficult to find an employee that possesses all of the skills you are looking for to fill your job opening. One option is to hire a job applicant and train him/her while on the job. If an employer hires an eligible participant through the On-the-Job Training (OJT) program, Workforce Solutions Northeast Texas may reimburse the employer up to half of the employee's wages during their training period. It's a win-win as you are able to fill a job vacancy and the worker is able to learn new skills. The OJT program is subject to fund availability.
