assessment helps employers identify the right fit for the right person as it measures an
individual’s interests, aptitudes and work values.

An important step in the GRIT process is career coaching. Career coaching is often completed
by an Ohio Means Jobs associate. Through this personalized interaction, GRIT can identify the
best career opportunities for you.
Apply for appropriate jobs
The futureplans.com toolset takes your strengths and maps your assessment results into real-
time job opportunities. Through this tool, you can identify current job opportunities that are
aligned with your strengths.

Interview for jobs
Employers find tremendous benefits in working with people through the GRIT process as they
can identify the best candidates for their roles. Remember to check your email, voicemail and
text messages multiple times a day. An employer interviewing for remote worker typically uses
a variety of technology-based communication methods to interact with candidates. It is
important that you look for these messages so that you don’t miss an opportunity.
Interviewing for a remote job often involves a virtual video interview with one or many
individuals. Some employers also use a recorded video format where the interviewee submits
recorded answers to questions. The Ohio Means Jobs office has resources to help for you to
prepare for all interview scenarios.
