Hiring young adults can present opportunities for you to train employees in the skills you need to meet your business needs. Employers receive a 50% reimbursement of wages for up to six months.
Whether you need an entry level position filled or a recent graduate, On-the-Job Training might be a tool to help you fill your positions.
If you interview a young adult (18-24) who lacks the skills for your job opening, yet you may be willing to train while receiving financial help with the job training costs, contact your nearest
