The ease of the processes to get 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 by Cytec from SC Works.

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, or delivered/mailed.
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 Works system.
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. To access the toolkit, visit: http://www.onetcenter.org/toolkit.html
Application Prescreening
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.
Job Fair and Interviewing Support
Business may reserve space within the SC Works McAlister Square Center to conduct a job fair and/or to schedule interviews. The following amenities will be provided: space for interviewing, conference room, telephone/fax, computer/Internet access (with proper scheduling).
Assessments
Applicants may be assessed using a variety of standardized tools:
  • Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE) – the most widely used test for adult basic education and is available in a pen-and-pencil or online. Provides the most reliable measurement of reading, mathematics, and language skills for adults.
  • WorkKeysฎ Assessments – Developed by American College Testing (ACT), WorkKeysฎ is a job skills assessment system that measures real-world skills.
  • WorkKeysฎ Job Profiling – a job analysis that helps identify the skills employees need to be successful on the job.
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 employerinfo@greenvillecounty.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 at employerinfo@greenvillecounty.org.
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.
