CAREERS offers comprehensive, person-centered services to help individuals with disabilities find and keep rewarding jobs. Our extensive services include:
Assessment of Abilities
We provide an in-depth assessment of each individual’s strengths, weaknesses, skills, interests, special needs, employment history, employment goals, and educational history.
Locate Employment Opportunities
We help individuals find long-term jobs that offer friendly, secure working environments and the chance for advancement.
Each person is assigned a professional Employment Specialist who provides resume writing assistance, as well as coaching on interviewing techniques, personal presentation, and other job seeking skills.
Our Employment Specialists set up interviews and accompany clients, as needed, to guide them through the interview process. We provide these services until each individual obtains an appropriate job.
Employment Specialists provide one-on-one training, when necessary, working with each individual until he or she is firmly established on the job. Our Employment Specialists provide needed support and are always available to answer questions. Long-term job coaching services are available, as needed.
Comprehensive Person-Centered Services
CAREERS focuses on the total person. We help each individual solve job-related issues, including transportation, special equipment, and medical needs. We also make referrals to other agencies that specialize in certain areas, such as counseling, recreation and benefit advisement.
One of our primary goals is to educate the public about the capabilities of people with disabilities and advocate on their behalf to secure and maintain meaningful employment.
