Discovery is the process of generating a person-centered employment profile based on client strengths, skills and interests. Developing a Discovery Profile involves interviews, observations and personal experiences across all lifestyle settings resulting in a thorough document that may be used for employment purposes.
Job Development involves working with clients to obtain employment aligning with her/his Discovery Profile and Career Development Plan. Finding a job requires collaboration with a team of people and may take a couple of attempts before the highest level of "goodness of fit" is reached.
Employment Path services are person-centered experiences where clients learn valuable employment skills within community business settings. Work experiences are 'hands-on' where clients gain employment skills through volunteer and internship experiences. Work experiences also involve gathering in business settings to interview business owners and employees, learn the process of generating a strong resumé, discuss what it means to be an employee, and discuss other employment-related topics.
Job Coaching involves mentoring clients in their chosen employment environment and assisting clients in maintaining employment and progressing in their employment field. Job Coaching services are intended to continue as long as clients require them.
