Work Experience Program (WEP)

Learn By Doing.

W.E.P. is a partnership designed to help participants learn employers expectations in actual work settings, to obtain job skills and establish the type of work ethic that employers are looking for in employees. W.E.P. is designed to provide work experience to adult Ohio Works First participants by placing them at non-profit and other work sites.

How Does W.E.P Work?

The Process

Participants are placed on a work site based on 1-on-1 assessments that identify job skills, interests and barriers to employment. Each work site provides a job description so that you know what you'll be doing and so that SureHire monitors are able to provide support. With the help of the employers, They will evaluate your attendance, work performance, initiative, problem solving, communication, cooperation and ability to change and make decisions independently.

Each participant is required to meet a certain minimum number of hours at the work site every month. SureHire will act as the go-between for you and the employer to schedule you carefully so that you can complete the required monthly hours. As skills are learned, participants are encouraged to enter the TEAM program or start regular employment.

Ask your SureHire representative about using WEP as a stepping stone to your future.
