The Custom Job Search. Supported Employment is designed to assist individuals to find and/or keep a job. This is achieved through the assistance of a Supported Employment Manager (job coach). Job coaches collaborate with job seekers to develop a career plan, set goals and expectations, and train on how to navigate the workforce. They also assist with career negotiation and on-the-job training. Along the way, job coaches offer strategies for self-advocacy and building natural supports on the job and in the community.
Navigate the Workforce. Through the assistance of a job coach, job seekers are supported in finding desired career pathways. The job coach and job seeker work side-by-side on career development, career negotiation, accommodations, training, and more.
Explore Career Paths. A PAID work-based learning experience that closely resembles an internship. OJTs are developed through collaboration of a job seeker, an employer, PASS, and Vocational Rehabilitation. These experiences are designed for job seekers to develop professional skills and explore career opportunities, while employers are offered the opportunity to build a stronger work force.

Discovery & Customized Employment
Uncover passions and realize dreams! Certified job coaches provide customized support to identify a job seeker's interests and passions. Using this information, the job coach and job seeker build a partnership based in trust and mutual respect. This pre-employment process is called Discovery. The job coach and job seeker then work side-by-side to develop a position that meets the interests and values of the job seeker and the needs of the business community. This results in career employment.
Prepare for the Workforce. A 20-hour course where job seekers will practice valuable skills such as communication, teamwork, work ethic, and self-confidence. Training on job search techniques such as resume building, interview preparation, and career exploration give the job seeker a competitive edge as they enter the job market.
