Job seekers

On-the-Job Training

On-the-Job Training, or OJT, is an employment and training strategy hybrid.  That is, OJT is both employment and training.  OJT assists WIOA candidates who have the skills for a new career, but lack practical hands-on experience by reimbursing an employer a part of their wage during the initial training period

Workshops

Workshops are a great opportunity to enhance your job search, gain new skills or learn about new career options.  SC Works Midlands brings you dynamic presentations on wide range of topics every month.  Please visit our Workshops page for the current calendar of events.


 

WIOA

The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.  WIOA replaces and enhances the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998.

Unemployment Insurance

Unemployment Insuarance (UI) is a nationwide program created to financially help eligible workers, who are unemployed through no fault of their own, while they actively search for new work.  The UI program is administered by the South Carolina Department of Employment & Workforce.  Click below to find out more or file a claim.
