The community based Work Assessment andJob Tryout are tools to help you explore your career goals and to empower you to achieve those goals. They consist of a trial placement with an employer in a field of your interest. Upon completion of the assessment, a review of the findings will be held with the vocational team members consisting of you, your VR counselor, and/or Case Manager.
Together as a team, we will work towards obtaining employment that best matches your personal interests and skills. A job development plan will be created with you and your vocational team. This plan will identify employment goals, objectives, and individual responsibilities to achieve your goals. Other job development services include development of a master job application, resume building, job search log, interview training, and prospective employment tours.
This service is individualized and intensive support one-on-one with our employment staff geared to prepare you for job development and placement. Instruction and training on workplace social skills, interviewing, and success on the job are just a few of the subjects you may cover with this service. It is geared to give you the tools to achieve success in the workplace.
