JobsOhio releases promotional video to draw people to the Buckeye State

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's privatized job-creation office is using a new video to highlight reasons people should come to live, work and start businesses in the state.

JobsOhio released the 4 ½-minute commercial Monday.

It emphasizes Ohio's diverse geography, including rural and urban areas; its business climate; its skilled and plentiful workforce; and its location within 600 miles of most of the U.S. population.

The video also points to Ohio's top research-and-development hospitals and universities, its sports teams and its top-ranked amusement parks.

Unique assets are also featured, including the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium and the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra.
