    OCVTS JOB SERVICES DEPARTMENT
    OCVTS is excited to share some good news, namely our Buy Local, Hire Local Promo. A year ago, the local Chamber of Commerce initiated a “buy local” campaign for the area businesses. The OCVTS Job Services Department added “hire local.” The goal was simple. We wanted to highlight the successful students (past & present) that are working in the trades, promote our thirty-five programs that have trained the students in their career paths and most importantly, say thanks to the employers that have hired our students.

    Lastly, by selling the Buy Local, Hire Local tee shirts, OCVTS has raised money for our Foundation’s Scholarship Fund. To coin a phrase…this was a win-win situation and a “labor of love.” Our Buy Local, Hire Local Promo was truly a collaborative effort and we are grateful to everyone for making it happen. We encourage you to read the below articles.

    “If you have an OCVTS success story you’d like to share, please contact 732.473.3100 x 3175 or 3177.”
