JobSight Employers

Building Tomorrows Workforce Today!

At JobSight centers, more than a dozen state and federal employment and training programs are gathered under one roof to serve Eastern Kentucky's employers and job seekers. Through the growing network of JobSight centers, employers can:

  • Post Job Openings
  • Select From Prescreened Applicants
  • Learn How Employees or Potential Employees Can Get Training
  • Arrange For Customized Training
  • Set Up Their Own On-The-Job Training Program
  • Research Local Business and Employment Trends
  • Meet Training Providers and Influence Curriculum Development.
  • Interview Candidates On-Site
  • And More

 On-the-Job Training:

Many employers today find that on-the-job training programs help them reduce the cost of training new employees while still ensuring that the new employees learn exactly what they need to know to do their jobs. Eligible businesses with a need for well-trained new employees may be able to get as much as one-half of a trainee's salary paid during the training period.

On-the-job training helps employers get well-trained employees, while helping job seekers get the training they need to land the job they want. Everybody wins!

Customized Training:

Customized training offers employers another way to ensure that new hires and even existing employees will be well trained and productive. Each customized training program coordinates the appropriate resources and curriculum to meet the unique training requirements of an employer or group of employers. Under a customized training program, the employer is required to pay at least one-half of the cost of the training, and to hire the trainees who successfully complete the course.

The customized training program helps employers get well-trained employees, while helping job seekers meet industry-specific skill requirements. Everybody wins!

JobSight is a cooperative effort of over a dozen state and federal programs coordinated and administered by Eastern Kentucky C.E.P., Inc. (EKCEP).

EKCEP is an equal opportunity employer with equal opportunity programs. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities.
