    Updated Ohio TechCred Program Open AGAIN!

    Posted by Kari Brooke on Oct 1, 2020 3:44:39 PM

    The Ohio TechCred Program is open again and employers once again DO NOT have to identify specific employees (current and/or prospective employees) on the application this round.

    Embrace Pain & Uncertainty

    Posted by Doug Meyer on Aug 5, 2020 9:53:14 AM

    I am one that likes to plan, have clarity, and feel in control. Well, 2020 certainly has challenged me in these areas. Regardless, I still have a choice.
