Training Opportunities

Work Experience Program

The Work Experience Program offers participants training opportunities to earn as they learn, while employers benefit from 100% paid wages to the participant during the training period. The Wok Experience Program focuses on jobs that involve new technologies, production, service or additional skills for full-time positions (30 hours per week is considered full-time). Advantages to the employer include:

  • No cost access to a carefully screened pool of available talent
  • You set the qualifications, interview, and select the individual
  • Customized training your way, at your workplace
  • 100% paid wages to the participant during the training period
  • Simple process with minimal paperwork

Workforce Solutions East Texas partners with employers in various industries and locations throughout the 14-county region and offers a team of specialized recruiters to help match positions and skill sets. We invite employers from private non-profit, the public, or private sectors to apply for The Work Experience program.

On-the-Job Training Program

The On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program provides  employers partial reimbursement of wages for training new, full-time employees. Employers need only be willing to train the person they choose to hire into a permanent, full-time position. Advantages to the employer include:

  • OJT pays the employer to develop an employee who is almost a perfect fit
  • You may choose from candidates provided by Workforce or refer your own for eligibility determination
  • Contributes to your own company growth – saving you time and money
  • Employees who recognize management that is supportive of their growth and enrichment are generally more engaged and productive

Workforce Solutions East Texas partners with employers in various industries and locations throughout the 14-county region and offers a team of specialized recruiters to help match positions and skill sets.  For more information about the OJT Program, please contact one of our Employer Resources Representatives at your local Workforce Solutions Center or email us at Employerservices@easttexasworkforce.org.
