Ohio Means Jobs, Fairfield County has been instrumental in assisting Acloché with finding good associates to meet our client’s needs... It is difficult to find skilled candidates for many of the job opportunities we get, so having this extra resource has been invaluable in the search for qualified associates.

Ohio Means Jobs was one of my first contacts when I started working in Circleville. I’m very thankful to have them in the community as a resource because they’ve been a tremendous asset to me as I’ve worked to develop relationships, hire employees and establish a competitive wage structure.
