the applicants profiles set up, the ease of communication to SC Works and quick response time,
the large stacks of applications made available to Cytec on a frequent basis, and the ease of
use of the SC Works applicant tracking system all lend to the high quality of service received

List Your Jobs
List your job openings online with us for FREE using self-service tools! SC Works Online System
(SCWOS) is the State's largest workforce development database that employers can use to post positions,
search for candidates, and review job market trends. To get started you can create your own account by
visiting SCWOS and then determine which way you want to list your job vacancy: 1) Internal Job Order;
2) External Job Order; or 3) Dual Job Order.
Internal Job Order: employers will receive staff assistance with writing the job
order; the company name will be suppressed on the job order until the applicant has received in-person
screening and has been determined as meeting the minimum requirements. Arrangements will be made with
the employer on the process for receiving the screened applications, which may be via online, email,
External Job Order: employers use the SCWOS self-service features for listing job
vacancies, searching for qualified applicants, and retrieving applications. Staff assistance may be
provided to help with navigating through the self-service labor exchange tools.
Dual Job Order: a combination of the 2 above job orders internal and
external. This type of job order enables employers to receive the benefits of the
internal job order as well as they will have the capability to still manage the applications
received via the external job order. The Dual Job Order may be most feasible for events such as
mass hiring and for ensuring that the job vacancy is marketed broadly within and outside of the SC
Need assistance developing a job description? The O*Net Resource Center has job descriptions for
just about every position! It also has intensity levels and educational and skill requirements.

Only the businesses who chose to list their job orders internally will receive assistance with
screening of applications to ensure minimum job requirements are met. NOTE: Pre-employment costs
for drug testing and background checks are not part of the SC Works Greenville screening process.

On-the-Job Training (OJT)
OJT is offered through the WIA Program to enable businesses to reduce their costs for training new workers who meet WIA eligibility. The
business may be reimbursed up to 75% of the gross wages paid to each
eligible worker during their first 3 months (maximum of 12
weeks) of employment (depending on qualifying circumstances). The worker must be pre-qualified by WIA prior to the start of training and
the proper OJT paperwork must be in place prior to the new hire beginning employment. For more information contact our business service
office at 864-467-3620 or at firstname.lastname@example.org

Work Experience (WE)
Work experience is a planned, structured learning experience that takes place in a workplace for a limited period of time. This temporary
training program allows registered WIA participants an opportunity to gain exposure to the world of work. The training opportunity may be
paid or unpaid. For more information contact our business service office at 864-467-3620 or
Incumbent Worker Training (IWT)
Incumbent Worker Training provides resources for businesses to train currently employed workers in an effort to keep businesses and workers
competitive. IWT provides funding for training needed in current businesses due to expansion, new technology, retooling, new services/product
lines and new organizational structuring or as part of a layoff aversion strategy. IWT may also fund training in new businesses if those jobs
are ineligible for assistance through ReadySC, formerly the Center for Accelerated Technology Training (CATT). However, there will be a waiting
period of 120 days for new or expanding businesses that displaced workers elsewhere in the United States.
To see if IWT funding is available or to learn more information, please contact SC Works Business Services at 864-467-3620.
