Workforce Specialist - VISTA
City of Cincinnati
Member Duties : The 2019-2020 VISTA will be tasked with completing the Workforce Action Plan initiated in 2018. This includes accessing, compiling, and reporting on demographic data (i.e. Census, Bureau of Labor Statistics). It also includes researching common issues experienced by peer cities as well as best practices to remove barriers to employment. The VISTA will also need to establish a methodology to inventory and engage all organizations providing services related to workforce training within Cincinnati. Engagement will involve scheduling interviews, conducting surveys, as well as other methods. This information will ultimately be organized into a WAP that clearly outlines existing conditions, identifies gaps in terms of support services and policies, and outlines short- and long-term recommendations for the City and workforce stakeholders.
