About Ashland Job Match
Ashland Job Match is a program put on through the Ashland Community Resource Center. This program connects low-income and homeless individuals in the community with businesses and individuals looking for hard workers. This helps to create opportunities for individuals who may not otherwise have had any. It provides people with work experience to build their resume and obtain employment references; this will help them secure a more stable job position in the future.
Ashland Job Match gives the community a chance to provide struggling individuals with a “hand-up” rather than a “hand-out”. Ashland Job Match personally screens each individual that is looking for work and matches them with the available job position. The Jobs Specialist through Ashland Job Match is the only person who can see the job posting, and they will be responsible for matching an individual to the open position. This ensures that employers’ information will remain confidential, and they will receive an employee matched to their needs.
